Strengthening corporate responsibility: The case for mandatory due diligence in the EU to protect people and the planet

This briefing sets out the key components of due diligence legislation requiring companies to conduct checks on their investments and supply chains to identify, prevent and mitigate environmental, social and governance risks and impacts within and outside the EU.

The briefing draws on lessons from Global Witness and ClientEarth's combined experience of due diligence in operation across a range of sectors. It aims to inform discussions amongst policy makers, and encourage a more rigorous and consistent approach to checks on Europe's business practices, imports, productions and investments.
