Don’t sweat the small stuff? The new proposal for the EU directive on corporate sustainability due diligence

6 March 2022

On 23 February 2022, the European Commission released the much anticipated proposal for the Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence. The aim of this Directive is to reduce human rights violations and environmental harms across the global value chain by making large companies carry out ESG due diligence and aligning their corporate policies more with various international commitments such as the Paris Climate Agreement (Article 15) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Annex).
