Dear Business & Human Rights Resource Centre,
Thank you for reaching out and sharing your survey.
With reference to the topic of your inquiry, we’d like to share that Diesel has no subsidiaries, production plants or directly company-owned shops in Russia or in Ukraine.
As we have closely followed the development of the situation since the outbreak of the conflict, Diesel has decided to promptly stop its operations in Russia on the official e-commerce of the brand (diesel.com), in line with the Italian and European regulations.
We are constantly monitoring the development of the events.
As a member of the OTB Group, Diesel has actively contributed to all the initiatives that OTB Foundation has undertaken in support of the refugees and the Ukrainian population. OTB Foundation was the first to respond to UNHCR's urgent appeal to help people and families fleeing Ukraine and directly helped to safely transport and welcome more than 440 refugees to Italy in the last months.
