Executive Education Program

The number of requirements in sustainability reporting can be overwhelming. Which legislation is an obligation for what type and size of organizations? What do abbreviations such as CSRD, ESRS, EU Taxonomy, CS3D, EU NFRD, SFDR, IFRS-S, GRI, GGP, and SBTi stand for, and how are they interrelated? And most importantly, how do you ensure your organization is ready for ESG audits?

Discover how to prepare your organization for sustainability audits

During the Executive Education Program, you’ll get the answers to all these questions. This program enhances your knowledge and skills so you’ll know what you need to get assurance-ready for your sustainability reporting.

Jelle Mattias Holwerda RA, a Dutch Chartered Accountant, will teach the program. He is an experienced accountant in both the private sector with EY and the public sector with the Dutch Ministry of Finance. On top of that, he is a lecturer at Nyenrode Business University. Hence, he is an expert in auditing in the face of (sustainability) reporting.

“We met with our external auditor yesterday as we are currently having our DMA analysis pre-audited. Thanks to the training, we had a more professional discussion. Also, choosing a position ourselves instead of the external auditor worked out positively!”

“Jelle has solid knowledge of all relevant elements for preparing CSRD reporting and conveys this well. We also gained great insights from the daily practices of the other participants. The training provides a lot of practical and theoretical information to (further) set up and organize the CSRD process.”

“As an RA, I find the addition of non-financial information fascinating. CSRD expands and enriches our field as accountants. Yes, it’s complex, but the gathered information gives companies much more insight into their impact and the chance to optimize their core processes.”
