During this event we shared perspectives on the current activity and challenges for ESEF reporting and looked into the future to explore the way we expect iXBRL tagging requirements will extend to include sustainability/ESG reporting in the years to come.   

Our XBRL Europe digital event on ESEF saw circa 300 attendees for 400 registrations. Let us thank the preparation committee, the presenters and you all the attendees of this event.
