Proposed EU legislation on sustainable corporate governance: Sedex contribution

The European Commission is seeking to introduce legislation in 2021 that requires companies to conduct due diligence around human rights and the environment. This legislation aims to hold businesses more accountable for their impact on people and the planet.

Sedex is participating in the Commission’s public consultation on this to represent our members’ needs and drive responsible business practices. We are starting to become more actively involved with policy work, engaging with governments from time to time, to proactively participate in discussions that promote responsible business principles.

We have asked some of our EU-based members to share their thoughts on different topics relating to this proposed legislation. We will use their responses, anonymously and no response will be shared individually, to inform our submission to the European Commission. We will publish a summary of findings from our members’ responses on our website and through our other digital channels.

Here you will find answers to some common questions. If you would like to know more please contact your Sedex Relationship Manager, or contact us via this email.
