LETTER To the COREPER to ensure an effective CSDDD
November 13th, 2023
by ECCJ and 60+ NGOs

On 15th November, politically nominated ambassadors at the COREPER meeting will discuss the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). The goal is to update the Council’s negotiation mandate for the next political trialogue scheduled for the week after, the 22nd of November.

Over 60 NGOs are drawing policymakers’ attention to five issues that are key to aligning the legislation with international standards and ensuring real-world improvements for people and the planet:

  1. Climate transition plans.
  2. Civil liability and access to justice.
  3. Inclusion of the financial sector.
  4. Value chain.
  5. Normative scope.
