Which regulations apply to me?

From EU regulations such as the CSRD, to the global standards of the ISSB, the reporting landscape is transitioning at speed. Robust disclosures create value - 75% of UK investors are now considering ESG risks and opportunities when screening investment opportunities. Reporting can elevate your response and showcase your understanding of the impact your organisation has on the environment. Above and beyond mandatory requirements, you can build trust and leverage increased access to capital.


The intention behind the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework is to provide investors, banks, and other financial institutions with more detailed information about climate-related risks and opportunities.

The framework is designed to show how climate risks may impact financial performance and promote thorough risk assessment and informed decision making. Our team aligns closely to this framework, publishing best practice advice each year to ensure companies unlock value and understanding through their reporting strategy.


Applicable to all companies listed on EU-regulated markets, the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) marks a significant step change in sustainability reporting, with more companies than ever falling within scope of the requirements.

The CSRD requires considered baselining and target setting, and therefore strategic direction is essential, as companies must report against targets. More than ever, a long-term approach to sustainability reporting is vital in creating transparency, whilst transforming operations to align with net zero ambitions.


The ISSB aims to deliver a global baseline of sustainability-related disclosure standards, focused on the needs of investors. The disclosures will provide them with information about companies’ sustainability-related risks and opportunities, to support informed decision making and build trust in the market.

Disclosure requirements include information about exposure to climate-related risks and how this could impact future cash flows, as well as the governance processes in place and climate-related scenario analysis.
