The rules of financial law in connection with the worldwide spread of sustainable development concept apply to the social and environmental aspects of the operation of companies. EU legislation provides for accountability of organizations for the management of social and environmental challenges.
This study aims to highlight the common features and issues of financial law at the international and national levels on the example of companies with international investment.
The study highlights how companies with international investment in Ukraine ensure compliance with financial law and how this practice generally affects business strategy, business model, social behavior, and environmental protection. The common features of the norms of international and financial law within the EU are determined due to the adaptation and policy of integration of the norms into the national legal framework. Member States have adapted the new provisions of Directive 2014/95/EU, companies make public social and environmental operations following the new requirements. The implementation of financial law standards provides the company with several advantages. CSR reporting may not be in line with the actual business focus on environmental sustainability, as it stems from the voluntary nature of this type of reporting, which is contained not only in the law of Directive 2014/95/EU but also in the reporting of Italian, Spanish, Ukrainian companies. Sustainability reports do not guarantee effective management practices for the company's environmental and environmental issues. The theoretical value of this study lies in complementing the concept of social responsibility: the concept of social responsibility applies to reporting to investors, not society, helping to create business value and increase investment opportunities and maintain profitability.
