At its heart, sustainability is about how a company creates value for and mitigates its negative impact on people and the planet.

Our Head of Corporate Sustainability, Susanne Winge together with Linnéa Waninger, Supply Chain Lead & Advisor at Ethos, will deep dive into legislation and how to proactively work with human rights processes.

Sustainability data is an important aspect of the new EU regulations. Companies will need to report a range of different KPIs depending on industry, company size and business relationships. This also requires an understanding of how to collect, manage, and follow up on the data.

The final data will be assured by third-party auditors, the relationship and involvement of your company auditor is therefore crucial to understand the requirements. Join this session when our Head of DigitalSolutions & Analysis, Niklas Vinge, breaks down what data is required to report upon and when and Peter Ekberg, Partner, Audit & Assurance, from Deloitte, takes you through important insights to be ready for the data audit.
