Background

According to the new rules, companies will be required to act to eliminate their negative impact on human rights and the environment, such as on child labour, slavery, pollution or waste mismanagement. They will have to integrate due diligence into their policies and monitor how effective they are. The rules will be enforced by national authorities responsible for investigating and for imposing sanctions on non-compliant companies.
