Cascale is proud to announce that Adrián Branco, senior manager for Higg Index Brand & Retail, has secured a part-time secondment with the European Financial Reporting Advisory Group (EFRAG).

In a part-time secondment in-kind with EFRAG that began in March, Branco’s involvement will bring extensive industry knowledge and technical expertise to support the development of textile-specific European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS) for the Textiles, Accessories, Footwear, and Jewelry (MTA) sector.

His contribution will focus on providing expertise in the field, identifying sustainability matters, and drafting the ESRS-MTA under the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD). This work is a pivotal step in shaping the future of sustainability reporting standards for the textile and apparel industry.

The announcement was made during Cascale and Worldly’s recent webinar: “Navigating Legislation & the Higg Index: Higg BRM with CSRD & More.” Click here to view the webinar recording.
