Business value

Help your organization comply with the European Union's Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) to disclose ESG risks, opportunities, metrics and targets. The CSRD updates and replaces the existing Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) and goes into effect throughout the EU in 2023. Companies who do business in Europe will need to report and comply with EU Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). A big goal of CSRD is to standardize and simplify sustainability reporting to replace the current wide range of different sustainability reporting standards and frameworks. Microsoft Sustainability Manager complies with CSRD efforts to consolidate into one ESG report that meets the needs of EU regulators, investors, and other stakeholders.
