The number of companies obliged to write sustainability reports according to the Directive:

  • Before 1 January 2024: 11,700 companies in the EU
  • After 1 January 2024: 50,000 companies in the EU
  • After 1 January 2025: All corporations based in the EU with over 250 employees, more than 40 million EUR income and over 20 million EUR capital
  • After 1 January 2026: All EU companies trading in the stock market, including mid-sized and smaller companies.
