NGOs call for effective Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD)

On 15 November, Deputy Permanent Representatives to COREPER I will discuss the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) to update the Council’s negotiation mandate for the next political trialogue.

Amnesty International and 60 other organisations and networks have jointly written to the Ambassadors ahead of their meeting, to draw their attention to five issues that are key to aligning the legislation with international standards and ensuring real-world improvements for people and the planet, namely:

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