Coming up in 2021: Understanding the EU directive on human rights due diligence

Supply chains have been in the spotlight this year due to trade wars and COVID-19.

This year, the EU has put in place a wide proposal for mandatory corporate environmental and human rights due diligence. 

During this webinar we will discuss these business and regulatory trends and how companies can prepare to manage their obligations.  

Key takeaways:
Learn the new rules for mandatory corporate environmental and human rights due diligence in the EU
