The French duty of vigilance law: how to prevent violations and obtain remedy for victims?

Webinar | 19 December | Online

The French corporate duty of vigilance law establishes a legally binding obligation for parent companies to identify and prevent adverse human rights and environmental impacts resulting from their own activities, from activities of companies they control, and from activities of their subcontractors and suppliers with whom they have an established commercial relationship.

The purpose of this webinar is to build capacity on how civil society organizations and trade unions (especially from the South) can concretely use this law in case of violations committed by subsidiaries, subcontractors or providers of French transnational companies. It will give examples of ongoing judicial proceedings, in particular sharing the experience of Friends of the Earth France's case on Total (for more information see https://www.totalincourt.org/)

 

Organizers and speakers:

  • Juliette Renaud, Senior campaigner - Corporate accountability, Friends of the Earth France
  • Sabine Gagnier, Advocacy Officer on Business and human rights, Amnesty International France
