Replay available! Sustainability Update: How tax functions are affected by the new business imperative (7 March 2023)

Sustainability has become a business imperative. This is driven by emerging laws and regulations to protect the environment. Governments impose new taxes and levies to incentivize positive environmental behaviors. In addition, there are greater expectations from consumers and society at large for businesses to act responsibly and sustainably. 

Tax and legal departments often face challenges assessing the potential impact of such new developments on tax operations. While the link to tax may not always be obvious, understanding the implications of sustainability developments is essential to effectively manage the fiscal and compliance obligations, as well as to identify potential opportunities (e.g., grants and incentives).  

During this episode of the Sustainability Update webcast series, we provided an overview of current and upcoming sustainability-related developments across Europe and beyond. This is a unique opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and better understand sustainability challenges and opportunities.

Topics discussed were:

  • Impact of sustainability on business, tax and legal operations: Gain a broad understanding of how sustainability is affecting your operations.

  • CBAM: Stay informed on the latest developments in the field and learn why businesses need to act now.
