  • European Commission Seeks Feedback on Changes to Non-Financial Reporting Regime
    01/30/2020
    The European Commission is seeking feedback on a roadmap for its proposed changes to the Non-Financial Reporting Directive. The Directive specifies the non-financial information (e.g., regarding the environment, social issues and bribery and corruption) that large listed companies, banks and insurance companies must report on annually. The Commission has committed to review the Directive in order to strengthen firms’ reporting in this area, particularly with respect to the adequacy of reporting on sustainable investment. Policy options include: (i) revising the existing non-binding guidelines on reporting under the Directive; (ii) endorsing existing or future voluntary standards on non-financial reporting; and (iii) revising and strengthening the provisions of the Directive itself. Feedback on the roadmap should be submitted by February 27, 2020. The Commission intends to launch a further consultation on the possible revision of the Directive in Q1 2020.
