How BDO can help

Integrating sustainability into a business is a transformational journey: an ongoing process of monitoring, modification and rethinking. BDO helps organisations by outlining how to approach embedding sustainability practices into their business.

Part of the challenge is understanding where to start: whether a company is at the Activating, Compliant, Proactive, Strategic or Purpose-driven stage, BDO’s 5-stage maturity roadmap and continuous improvement methodology help businesses to consolidate their commitment to sustainable development and to simplify the complexities encountered on the sustainability integration journey.

BDO’s experts have compiled a range of publications and tools that provide guidance on the path to achieving and transforming for a sustainable future, whether your company needs support on calculating and reporting on GHG emissions, seeks to meet the challenges of sustainable financing and investment decisions or wants to engineer operational resilience across the supply chain.

Developments in sustainability reporting have moved at an unprecedented pace. The demand for sustainability disclosures to be made by entities in a globally consistent manner has become a priority for the investor community as well as various levels of government worldwide. As such there is an increased need for Boards of Directors (or equivalent governing bodies) and Those Charged with Governance (TCWG), such as audit committees, to educate themselves and remain current on the status of sustainability reporting requirements worldwide. Do you know the answers to these 10 questions?

European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRSs) will significantly expand the reporting requirements for many entities operating in the EU, including a requirement to measure and disclose Scopes 1, 2 and 3 emissions, along with explaining how climate risks affect an entity's governance, strategy, business model and metrics and targets.

 Climate risk affects business operations across a variety of industries and companies must manage these risks. Different industries are impacted in various ways and to different extents, and there are variations in sectoral impacts by region as well. BDO in Hungary presents the results of the European Central Bank’s 2022 climate risk stress test, with an analysis of the effects on sectors based on greenhouse gas emissions. 

Tax is to be found within each element of the ESG agenda.  Whether it is compliance with Environmental Taxes, to changing attitudes to acceptable tax behaviours, or increased transparency and robust tax governance structures, an organisation’s tax policies will reflect the wider sustainability efforts embedded in an organisation. 

BDO’s global Tax professionals work with a range of clients to help them understand the role Tax plays in a sustainable and responsible organisation.
