Impact of the EU Directive on CR Reporting

European FlagAlmost one year ago, the European Union issued Directive 2014/95/EU. This Directive, which technically is an amendment to an earlier Directive that focused on financial reporting, outlined new requirements for companies to follow regarding the disclosure of non-financial information, mainly environmental and social issues. 


While it will take some time for the member states to issue corresponding regulations, it is clear that most large companies in the EU will now be required to disclose their performance and impacts when it comes to environmental and social issues.

Sustainserv is monitoring these developments and has written a brief that outlines our interpretations of where things currently stand and what this may mean for businesses based in the EU, or for EU-based subsidaries of foreign companies (including those owned by U.S. based entitities).

Comparative LCA of Transport Packaging

Sustainserv recently completed a comparative environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) of reusable corrugated layer pads made from polypropylene and corrugated cardboard. The pads are used as divider sheets for container transport in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. The study was commissioned by a leading multinational supplier of reusable polypropylene layer pads in order to understand the environmental impacts of their product and compare its environmental profile to the one of a relevant cardboard alternative. It was carried out following the guidelines of the ISO 14040 series. The methodology and results of the LCA were certified by TÜV NORD CERT GmbH who conducted the critical review.
