41% of Companies “Would Struggle” to Provide CSRD Data21.2.2024 08:22:00 CET | Press release
Some 41% of businesses fear that they would struggle to provide the data required to comply with new regulations.1 According to nShift, the global leader in parcel delivery management software, the longer companies leave starting to track their carbon emissions, the harder it will be to comply. The forthcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) requires some 50,000 businesses trading with the European Union to track and report on the carbon emissions from their activities. While the exact implementation deadline differs among sectors and countries, experts want that there is no time to waste. Putting off emissions monitoring until later risks creating a “steeper climb to compliance”. Mattias Gredenhag, CTO at nShift said, “The sooner companies start tracking emissions and compiling the required information, the better. For ecommerce and multi-channel retailers, this will include tracking the emissions on shipments. The longer businesses leave it, the steeper the climb
