ESG data collection

Free choice of system for data consolidation

Not all companies are yet prepared for comprehensive ESG reporting. Some are waiting and watching the developments of the requirements in which form they must disclose their non-financial issues in the future. This is even though the EU and Switzerland have been defining and publishing corresponding requirements for months:


  • Focus on ESG, double materiality (inside-out and outside-in)
  • Valid from:
    • 1.1.24: companies Non Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD)
    • 1.1.25: companies with more than 250 employees
  • 1.1.26: Listed SMEs and international groups with turnover > EUR 150 million. Also concerns Swiss groups with subsidiaries in the EU that fulfil this condition.
  • The total number of affected companies in Europe is estimated at over 50,000
  • Assurance required
  • Output: Machine-readable format iXBRL


  • Focus on climate, double materiality (inside-out and outside-in)
  • Valid from financial year 2023
  • The total number of large companies affected is based on the criteria > 500 employees, 20 million total assets or 40 million CHF turnover
  • No assurance required
  • Output: To be published at least in internationally disseminated formats readable by both humans and machines and on the website, with the machine-readable format to be published from reporting year 2024.

In Switzerland, the new regulation requires a separate sustainability report in addition to the annual report — at a minimum, this is a separate chapter in the annual report. In addition to the content-related topics, this also requires procedural and technical preparation.
