Recent business highlights
Substantial growth in Subscription revenue supports strong and healthy operation: An important outcome of Klappir’s product-led strategy is the remarkable year-over-year growth of 35% in subscription revenue. The newly introduced ESRS premium plan and the annual statement subscription have positively contributed to this growth, along with an increased number of new Nordic customers. The growing interest and responsibility of customers to lead by example and adhere to sustainability standards have inspired other companies in their value chain to embark on their own sustainability journey, often utilizing Klappir software. This network effect is expected to further motivate companies to initiate their sustainability journey, especially considering Klappir Platform’s flexible product and service subscription model, tailored to individual needs. A higher proportion of subscription revenue in the total revenue signifies a robust and healthy operation. Subscription revenue has increased from 53% to 57% of total revenue. Similarly, EBITDA has improved, reaching 97.2M kr or 16.9% in 2023 compared to the previous 31.5M kr or 7% in 2022.

An increased focus on Product innovation and Partner network drive Global expansion:
Klappir’s recent expansion into the Danish market has confirmed the strength of its product offering compared to alternatives solutions in the market. This success has encouraged Klappir to further expand into the Nordic and European markets. While Klappir’s platform is well-prepared for upcoming EU legislation, the company has never invested more in product innovation to solidify its position as a leading ESG and Sustainability Accounting platform. A key element in Klappir’s growth strategy is transitioning into a PLG (Product-Led Growth) company and building a network of solution partners who sell, consult, implement, and provide value-added solutions to the platform. Implementation of this strategy has already begun, with over 13 partners and a team of more than 60 consultants working with Klappir to develop business across Europe in just 6 months. We believe this growth strategy is the right path for Klappir to scale and expand into European countries, setting us apart from the competition.

EU Taxonomy and Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations adapted into Icelandic law:
Two major EU legal instruments on sustainability, the EU Taxonomy Regulation and Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) were adapted into Icelandic law with Act no. 25/2023, which took effect in May 2023. Both regulations are pillars of the EU sustainable finance framework of the EU Green Deal and aim at establishing a framework for classifying sustainable economic activities and requiring financial institutions and financial market participants to disclose information on the sustainability of their investment products. Data quality and integrity is of the essence and Klappir has had fruitful conversations with several stakeholders, which are starting to materialize.

The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is taking effect: The year 2024 marks the first year that large, listed companies are subject to report on according to the EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive. EU and EEA member states need to transpose the Directive into their own laws by July 2024. These large, listed companies were already subject to submitting sustainability-related information with their annual reports according to current legislation but the new directive expands the reporting obligations and ensures better conformity and comparability.  Klappir’s product team has worked hard to keep up with these developments and adapt our solutions to this new reality in order to assist Klappir’s customers through this transition.  In the coming years, large unlisted companies (reporting in 2026 on 2025 data) and listed SMEs (reporting in 2027 on 2026 data) will follow suit.

Jon Agust Thorsteinsson, CEO:

“We are very pleased with our achievements in 2023. Our sustainability ecosystem is dynamically evolving, boasting a noteworthy milestone of engaging companies that rely on our software for solid sustainability accounting, comprehensive reporting, and seamless data sharing. Undoubtedly, the Klappir ecosystem holds paramount importance in aiding companies to monitor, calculate, and transparently communicate their sustainability performance, thereby facilitating their purposeful sustainability journey.

We are expanding our sales through our partner networks which presents a strategic growth opportunity – together with our partners, we are poised to utilize the opportunity in the EU market effectively.  As we focus on expanding our partner network, we’re reducing our advisory services to ensure efficient resource allocation together with our partners.

Our continued investment in research and development has ensured that we are able to deliver new, innovative product capability that will empower Klappir customers to comply with the new Corporate Sustainability Reporting (CSRD) directives and the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS). By our offerings, we are giving Klappir customers a significant edge, positioning them at the forefront of their industry sustainability efforts”.
