EU model legislation on corporate responsibility to respect human rights and the environment
February 26th, 2020

ECCJ has long been calling for EU legislation on mandatory Human Rights Due Diligence and corporate liability, requiring companies to identify, prevent, mitigate and account for human rights abuses and environmental damage in their global value chains.

ECCJ has now identified and detailed a set of minimum provisions that such legislation should include to ensure an effective and comprehensive EU regulatory framework for the above purposes.
