Supply Chain Due Diligence
FREE webinar
Wednesday, 19 May 2021
12.30-13.30pm BST (London)

Legislators, investors, NGOs, supply chains and consumers are increasingly shining a light on how corporations are managing their human rights impacts. The UK Government has stated it will issue fines for companies who do not demonstrate due diligence in their supply chains with regard to forced labour in Xinjiang province.

The E.U. has recently announced plans to develop a legislative proposal in 2021 that may require businesses to carry out mandatory due diligence in relation to the potential human rights and environmental impacts of their operations and supply chains. The legislation is likely to apply to all companies operating in the EU internal market, including those from outside the EU.

In a practical sense, the corporate response to the pressing need to address human rights risks and responsibilities is to undertake human rights due diligence across one’s supply chain in order to be able to report on it as well as manage impacts. This is in regard to forced labour and modern slavery reporting requirements under the UK MSA (2015) section 54 as well as environmental legislation.

Register for this FREE webinar to understand how the forthcoming EU mandatory human rights due diligence (mHRDD) legislation and other drivers underpinning the shift to global human rights due diligence impact your business.
