The ESG Transparency Award is presented by EUPD Research Sustainable Management GmbH, which has developed a comprehensive set of test criteria for evaluating ESG Reports. These test criteria consider all relevant aspects in the areas of environment, social, and governance. More than 35 criteria are examined, covering the topics such as emissions strategy, energy efficiency, workforce structure, and compliance. These criteria adhere to applicable regulations, global standards, and frameworks. In accordance with the EUs CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive), sustainability reports are mandated to be integrated into a company’s annual report in the future, aligning with the requirements of the ESRS standard. The assessment results offer insights into the extent to which companies have successfully integrated these regulations.
