On 1 June 2023, the European Parliament has agreed on its position on the Directive on corporate sustainability due diligence (the CSDDD). The CSDDD requires in-scope companies to conduct due diligence on, and take responsibility for, human rights abuses and environmental harm throughout their global value chains. Once the CSDDD has been formally adopted – not expected before 2024 – Member States will have two years to implement the CSDDD into national legislation. (Source: Loyens & Loeff)

Workshop | How are you preparing for the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive?
Welcome to a workshop on the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive. Stora Enso will share their interpretation of the directive and the impact on large companies such as Stora Enso. What is Stora Enso doing today to identify, prevent, mitigate, or end negative activities on human rights and environment. The first steps to adopt to the up-coming law have been taken and Stora Enso will share the outcome of a gap analysis and an overview of a deep-dive on human rights in one of their sourcing categories. How can the gap analysis and the insights from deep-dives support the enhancement of the sustainable sourcing process?
- How can companies strengthen the existing sustainable sourcing processes?
- What are the first steps to take?
- What is a high-risk supply chain?
All round table discussions during day 1 and workshops during day two have limited seats. This is one of very few summits where you can have real conversations with others sharing the same interests as you.
Make sure to >>register to not miss out. As of now the choose link is open and seats are limited. If you have ever visited a “normal” conference you know that listening to hours of on stage presentations and panels alone will not help you. An EBG summit will.
