Federal government remains divided on CSDDD

February 8, 2024

Climate & Company’s Co-Founder and CEO Ingmar  Jürgens featured in an article by the Tagesspiegel Background about how the German government cannot agree on a common position on the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD), also known as the EU Supply Chain Act, which is due to be adopted. In the article, Ingmar was quoted as follows:

“Under the guise of protecting the German economy, the German Liberals have given up an instrument that could be one of the most effective tools to address global environmental and social problems while creating a level playing field for companies across Europe. An EU supply chain law would oblige companies to identify and minimise their negative impacts on human rights and the environment along their entire value chain”.
