Key takeaways

ISSB and CSRD regulations both encourage scope 3 emissions reporting, which will implicate SMEs if they are in the value chain of larger companies.

The earlier SMEs start to prepare the better, especially when it comes to data collection, which is at the core of any reporting initiative.

The opportunities outweigh the risks with these regulations - you don't want to risk getting dropped by a company you are working with!
