With over 20 years of professional experience and extensive knowledge, eNET Hungary is prepared to support your company on the path towards a greener future!

 

Our ESG services offer innovative and effective solutions to help your company meet its ESG obligations. Additionally, we contribute to gaining market advantages and strengthening your brand by achieving sustainability goals.

ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) is an integrated framework used to evaluate a company’s environmental and social risks as well as its governance practices.

Challenges such as climate and population change, environmental pollution, and energy management issues pose global challenges. ESG focuses on these challenges, emphasizing the complexity of global issues and the importance of achieving sustainable solutions.

Obligations

From 2025, all large public interest companies established in Hungary must prepare an annual sustainability report (based on 2024 data for the first time) and develop an ESG strategy if they meet at least two of the following three criteria:

  • total balance sheet exceeding 10 billion Hungarian forints,
  • annual net revenue surpassing 20 billion Hungarian forints
  • an average number of employees of more than 500.

The following year, this obligation will expand to a broader spectrum of large enterprises, and a year later, it will encompass small and medium-sized enterprises capturing public interest. This signifies that setting and achieving sustainability goals will become a matter of market survival for the involved companies, beyond current PR and communication advantages.
