ESG: Supply Chain Due Diligence
Content Overview

Due diligence is the process by which undertakings identify, prevent, mitigate and account for actual and potential adverse impacts on human rights, including forced labor, and the environment in the company’s own operations, its subsidiaries and in its value chains. 

Due diligence requirements typically require undertakings to:

  • Integrate due diligence practices in their corporate policies, 
  • Identify actual and potential adverse impacts on human rights and the environment, 
  • Prevent and mitigate potential adverse impacts, bringing actual adverse impacts to an end and minimizing their extent, 
  • Establish and maintain a complaints procedure, 
  • Monitor the effectiveness of their due diligence policy and measures
  • Report and publicly communicate on due diligence.
