Many companies have realized that they can gain a competitive edge by adopting sustainable business practices. That’s why they have changed their operations to align more closely with ESG criteria and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Moreover, the EU has established more requirements to help the continent achieve its sustainability goals in the future: The European Green Deal, the new EU requirements for non-financial reporting on climate and environment issues, the stricter EU taxonomy regulation, the European Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and the European Commission’s proposal for a Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CSDD) Directive all aim to promote sustainable action and create transparency.From the point of view of investors in particular, well-founded and forward-looking positioning is more important than ever – and the right choice of location in the EU is crucial.
