Fulfilling the CSRD directive

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requires companies by law to report comprehensively on their sustainable practices. This is a huge effort that is best managed with the help of tools.

Audit-proof CSRD implementation

Materiality analysis and ESRS: better digital

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) became relevant for companies on January 1, 2024. It states that in future they must submit a detailed sustainability report every year. The data must be audit-proof, verifiable and certified by auditors. Our GLOBAL COMPLIANCE software takes care of CSRD management and supports you in carrying out the materiality analysis, provides space for structured documentation of your ESRS data points and facilitates the preparation of the report. An up-to-date CO2 balance sheet is a central component of the CSRD. Don't have one? Then we can create one for you.

Looking deeper: How our software works

CSRD reporting obligation made easy

CSRD brings with it new requirements and regulations that require precise knowledge of the legal landscape. Our GLOBAL COMPLIANCE software solution maps the reporting obligations in sustainability reporting in a legally compliant manner and can automatically adjust the reporting processes to ensure that companies are always compliant with the latest regulations.

Key function 1

Double materiality analysis
Stakeholder feedback

One of the core functionalities of our software is the double materiality analysis. This analysis is crucial to ensure that the reported sustainability aspects are not only relevant to the company itself but are also considered material by stakeholders. Stakeholders can view the IRO (impact-risk-opportunity) and make evaluations.

Detailed monitoring

Double materiality analysis - results and reporting obligation 

Once the assessment has been completed and the stakeholder feedback evaluated, a materiality determination takes place. Areas identified as material in the double materiality analysis are subject to reporting requirements.

Key function 2


The European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) are another central component of the CSRD, which is optimally supported by our software solution. ESRS compliance requires the transmission of sustainability reports in a standardized format. Here, GLOBAL COMPLIACE enables seamless creation and submission of reports, minimizing human error and ensuring deadlines are met.
