The traditional EY Award for the best master thesis at the chair of Prof. Dr. Berens (Westfälische Wilhelms-University, Muenster) was received by our team member Ms. Isabel Hertl. The ceremony took place at castle Wilkinghege on December 11, 2018. Mr. Senghaas (EY) and Prof. Dr. Berens handed over the award to Ms. Hertl (pictured). In the context of her master thesis “Challenges associated with the implementation of non-financial reporting guidelines for diversified groups – illustrated by the example of Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH”, Ms. Isabel Hertl examined the question of how to implement the requirements of the CSR Directive 2014/95/EU into a highly diversified enterprise, such as the Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH. In a first step, Ms. Hertl outlined legal and theoretical principles of the CSR Directive. Building on this, she identified fundamental challenges in the fields of sustainability management, traditional management accounting and external non-financial reporting. Congratulations, Ms. Hertl!
