Fieldfisher and Achilles are pleased to invite you to attend an interactive and in-person briefing session covering new European supply chain due diligence and reporting requirements.
Europe’s supply chain landscape is undergoing a transformative shift. New legislation requires a diligence-focused approach to supply chain management and compliance with strict reporting requirements. Alongside a focus on net zero and environmental matters, businesses are now also required to take a closer look at core labour rights as well as human rights concerns, including the prevention of modern slavery and child labour in their supply chains.
Whether it be the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act or the European Union’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) and Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD), these developments have implications for both European and international companies doing business in Europe. UK companies that want to ensure compliance – and to avoid regulatory enforcement and reputational damage – need to start putting in place appropriate practices and procedures now.
This Regulatory Briefing session will provide an important update on legislation impacting European businesses and exporters alike.
This informative morning briefing session will bring together business leaders with Fieldfisher and Achilles legal and technical experts to discuss:
How the new European regulatory landscape impacts UK businesses.
How the regulatory landscape is evolving and what that means for UK businesses operating in Europe.
What constitutes doing “enough” when it comes to supply chain due diligence and reporting.
How to ensure sufficient levels of risk analysis, transparent reporting and disclosure.
The practical challenges associated with achieving compliance and ways to overcome these.
This is a free in-person event open to eligible professionals interested in supply chain due diligence legislation. Places are limited. To request a place please RSVP here.
