Activating Climate Change Management in the ICT Industry

With the expected growth of the Communication Services industry, concerns related to energy use, product sustainability, and CO2 emissions are expected to increase, too. For this reason, these issues naturally form part of the top priorities of materiality matrixes of organizations in the industry. Developing a climate strategy provides a great opportunity to activate materiality on these topics and ultimately, reduce companies’ impact on the environment. This article explains how organizations can improve their longevity and resilience by identifying and assessing climate risks and opportunities associated with their business and provides practical steps for developing a corporate climate strategy.

New ESRS Framework: Impact on Sustainability Reporting in Europe

Earlier this year, The European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG) published the exposure drafts for the new European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). The development of this framework was requested by the European Commission in response to the need to have a single European-wide framework aligned with the requirements of the new CSRD directive. The draft version of the framework that is still under public consultation by various stakeholders highlights which new non-financial reporting features the European Commission wants to advocate for. Most notably, that of double materiality to determine which sustainability priorities are set to become mandatory, and the reporting sustainability indicators that will have to include the entire value chain and be considered from a short-, medium-, and long-term perspective.
