The Regulation sets mandatory requirements on disclosure for those in scope of the Non-Financial Reporting Directive (NFRD) (and the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) once it comes into effect). Non-EU entities that have debt or equity securities traded on EU regulated markets may be in scope as a result of the rules of the specific EU regulated market. If not, they will be brought into scope once the CSRD comes into effect.
