The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development is organising a 'Virtual Forum: Towards a Common Approach to Sustainable Supply Chains and Due Diligence' on 24 November 2020 from 11.00 am to 1.30 pm, which will be held as part of Germany's Presidency of the EU Council.

The German Government is committed to an EU Action Plan to strengthen Corporate Responsibility that promotes transparency, human rights, social and environmental standards in global supply chains and supports a coherent implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD Guidelines for MNEs.

The virtual forum will focus on current developments at the European level. High-level representatives of governments, civil society and businesses from the global North and South will share their perspectives on a mandatory human rights and environmental due diligence regulation on the European level.

As part of the virtual forum, the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC), together with the BMZ, will present a compendium of different perspectives from several stakeholders on these important developments.

Compendium of reflections: Towards EU Mandatory Due Diligence Legislation – Perspectives from Business, Public Sector, Academia and Civil Society
