UL Solutions Launches New UL 360 Features and Content to Support Compliance with New EU Sustainability Reporting Requirements

UL Solutions releases powerful new features and content on its UL 360 software ESG Disclosure module, which help companies navigate the EU’s disclosure requirements and prepare for audits and verification.

UL Solutions, a global leader in applied safety science, today announced new UL 360 software features and content that help companies comply with the European Union’s (EU) new sweeping sustainability reporting requirements, known as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).

These are the first new software features and content launched under the ULTRUS™ brand, UL Solutions’ software portfolio designed to help customers worldwide improve safety and sustainability.

CSRD reporting can be a significant undertaking, requiring extensive, complex and costly data analysis for companies and their supply chains. The new CSRD features and content in UL 360 and its ESG Disclosure module track companies’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) data points against the CSRD’s requirements in an audit-ready way, helping customers save time and money and preparing them for the CSRD’s mandatory verification requirements.

“Sustainability reporting is evolving, and many companies must now adapt to the shift from voluntary to regulated disclosure,” said John Genovesi, executive vice president and president of the Software and Advisory group at UL Solutions. “Our new CSRD disclosure features and content in UL 360 and its ESG Disclosure module are designed to help companies make this transition and successfully navigate new and emerging sustainability challenges, expectations and requirements.”

Companies around the world are increasingly facing new regulatory requirements, including CSRD, a mandatory and complex regulation for many companies that conduct business in the EU. The CSRD applies to many EU and non-EU companies that have significant business in the EU. It widens the scope of sustainability reporting, requiring detailed information about sustainability risks and opportunities and increasing the number of companies that must disclose.

The CSRD expands on previous sustainability regulations outlined in the EU’s Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD). Approximately 11,700 large companies already within the scope of the EU NFRD will be required to file disclosures for the 2024 financial year. It is estimated that, by 2028, over 50,000 companies with significant business in the EU, regardless of the location of their headquarters, will be obligated to disclose under the CSRD.
