Passed in 2022
This Directive amends the previous directive governing the reporting of non-financial information in financial disclosures. It extends the scope of reporting obligations to a much wider set of companies headquartered or operating in the European Union. They new obligations will apply from the 2024 financial year.

The Directive requires member states to introduce measures to ensure that sustainability disclosures include information on plans and strategies to ensure a corporate entity's business model and strategy are compatible with the transition to a sustainable economy, the global temperate target of 1.5 Degrees, and the goal of achieving climate neutrality by 2050, as well as the exposure of the entity to coal, oil and gas.

The Commission is mandated to adopt delegated acts supplementing the Directive and providing sustainability reporting standards for both large entities and small and medium sized businesses. These shall specify that reporting should include scope 1, 2 and "where relevant" scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions. Businesses are also required to report on social and human rights factors. Reporting standards should be aligned with the work of the Task Force for Climate Related Financial Disclosures.
