Hybrid event, both in person and online. We look forward to seeing as many people as possible in person.

The in-person meeting will take place at ERCST offices (Address: Rue Archimède 61, 1000 Brussels, Belgium). 

This workstream aims to bring together stakeholders and policymakers regularly to discuss substantive issues around hydrogen, informed by original intellectual input from ERCST.


For more than 20 years, the market has developed multiple reporting tools in response to the demand from investors for identifying which investments and economic activities can be seen as “sustainable”.

In 2020 the EU Taxonomy was introduced by the EU institutions as a flagship project of the sustainable finance strategy. It is meant to be an obligatory reporting tool to drive the flow of investment and give guidance to investors on economic activities that significantly contribute to the environmental objectives.

At the same time, there is an ongoing expansion of other sustainability reporting requirements through other pieces of legislation: Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), EFRAG standards, Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CSDD) and amended Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFRD).

Businesses increasingly understand the need to communicate with investors and the wider public about the climate and environmental risks and how undertakings want to transform toward a sustainable economy. However, navigating the matrix of reporting becomes a challenge and the resources needed to comply are growing. The balance must be kept between the genuine need for information, the burden behind its collection and its usefulness for the users – the complexity does not necessarily mean clarity.

This event aims at identifying the challenges, complementarity, overlaps, missing elements and the best way forward in the sustainability reporting framework.
