Crowe Poland develops ESG services
Crowe in Poland strengthens its competences in the field of sustainable development. In May 2024, Milena Kowalik-Szeruga joined the company's team as ESG Manager. With her experience, she will strengthen the development of services in the field of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) and EHS (Environment, Health, and Safety) strategies, non-financial reporting and carbon footprint calculation.

Milena Kowalik-Szeruga has over 10 years of experience in building a sustainable business. She effectively implements ESG standards using innovations that contribute to the effective development of companies. She has completed over 200 projects, including for companies such as Atlas Ward Polska, Panattoni, Skanska, Basf, Warbud and Nestle. She is an auditor and a certified European ESG advisor (EFPA).

Sustainable development is an increasingly hot topic for business – the companies themselves, as well as their clients, business partners, investors and employees. This is not only the non-financial reporting obligation, which will apply to most entrepreneurs, but also a strategic change. That is why we are still developing our competences in this area to provide clients with comprehensive consulting, technology and optimization of ESG activities - says Izabela Kuśmierz-Latała, CEO of Crowe in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Crowe Polska supports companies in the field of ESG

Crowe in Poland offers support to companies that have already been subject to the non-financial reporting obligation, as well as those that are just about to implement a sustainable development strategy. It assists, among others, in the analysis of double materiality, the development of ESG strategies and the related documentation, calculation of the carbon footprint and preparation of non-financial reports.

Currently, a large number of companies are faced with the need to develop an ESG strategy and calculate their carbon footprint. This is required, among others, when working with large corporations or foreign business partners. This aspect is also taken into account by financial or insurance institutions when rating companies. A mature approach to sustainable development therefore supports the company's competitive position, its growth and allows us to eliminate many business risks adds Milena Kowalik-Szeruga, ESG Manager at Crowe Poland.

From 1 January 2024, non-financial reporting is mandatory for the first group of entities – the largest public-interest entities, i.e. listed companies, banks, insurance companies and investment funds.

For over 30 years, Crowe Polska has been providing professional services for business, among others, in the area of audit, accounting, tax advisory and consulting. The company is part of the international Crowe Global network, associating over 200 companies in 150 countries.
