Practical guide: How to implement due diligence

Human rights and environmental due diligence is a concept developed by the UN 10 years ago, but it has been gaining momentum in recent months. It is a core of the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive proposal presented by the European Commission in February, and is also included as a precondition for sustainable activities and financial products in the EU Taxonomy and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. What does it mean for businesses? And how to do it? We answer the due diligence FAQs in our practical e-book.
