Prepare your supply chain for the upcoming human rights and environmental due diligence regulations in Germany, expected to take effect in 2021.
This Quick Guide will give you insights about :
Germany is the latest in the line of European states introducing national legislation on human rights due diligence (with relevant laws already adopted in France and the Netherlands, and slated for 2021 in Norway and Switzerland). Germany's proposed Supply Chain Law aims to create an obligation for businesses to conduct human rights and environmental due diligence at all tiers of their supply chains.
The proposed law, expected to take effect before the end of 2021 and strongly supported by the German business community and consumers, intends to hold companies responsible for ensuring adherence to social and environmental standards in their global supply chains. Businesses that fail to comply with the proposed Supply Chain Law’s requirements may face civil liability and be subject to administrative fines, while victims of human rights abuses would be entitled to file damage claims before German courts.
