France has introduced jail time and financial penalties for individuals in companies that do not comply with the new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).

Why does this matter to you?

  • Because of Scope 3.
  • Many of those large, French-based, organizations will need to include information from their vendors (ie, part of their Scope 3 reporting). This may trickle down to you.

Why might this also matter to you?

  • France is the first, but they won’t be the last.
  • Other countries will also add teeth to penalties for lack of compliance.

Why might this also matter to you?

  • What will these reporting companies need?
  • Certified sustainable vendors.
