Business value

This feature provides enhanced efficiency and accuracy for disclosing data for the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). You no longer have to sift through all of your sustainability data to determine what to include. The quantitative data captured through the Microsoft Sustainability Manager can be included in a CSRD assessment template.

Feature details

A new reporting type aligned to the quantitative aspects of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is provided across emissions, water, and waste. This reporting type includes options to define the following items:

  • Organizational unit
  • Reporting year
  • Goals to include
  • Level of detail to display

The quantitative data will be mapped and tagged with the ESRS requirement numbers following a template that's tied to the new CSRD report type. This feature significantly reduces the amount of time required to build the disclosure report.
