A joint call for EU mandatory human rights & environmental due diligence

On 2 September, 26 companies, business associations, and initiatives released a joint statement calling for EU-wide, cross-sectoral mandatory human rights and environmental due diligence legislation. 

Several signatories have already supported calls for mandatory due diligence at a national level through previous statements and ongoing campaigns. This is the first pan-European, international as well as cross-sectoral business statement to call for the legal duty of care.

Human rights and environmental due diligence should be integral to any responsible business conduct.
