IEA Submission: Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive
The Irish Exporters Association have expressed concerns about the seismic impact upcoming
sustainability regulatory changes will have on our members. It is without doubt that trade
sustainability is the single biggest challenge we as trade professionals are facing –
considering the particular acuteness of the greater need for sustainability efforts in our
industry owing to the global nature of supply chains. Without sustainable trade policies in
place, the economic growth gains from trade will inevitably decrease, while the social and
environmental costs will grow intolerable.
