Taking responsibility as a company for your impact on human rights and the environment is becoming a central and increasingly urgent theme. Global supply chains bring many positive impacts to countries and communities for example by creating employment, income, social and business networks, knowledge exchange. However, companies can also contribute, with their own operations and with their supply chains, to negative impacts for people and the natural environment.
The new ‘Act on Corporate Due Diligence Obligations for the Prevention of Human Rights Violations in Supply Chains’ holds companies responsible for investigating and acting on these risks, by setting out risk mitigation strategies and report on that. ImpactBuying aims to support companies that are preparing for the LkSG, to find out where they stand and identify their ‘gaps’ with regard to the implementation of this due diligence law.
