Global Legislation FAQs
A global regulatory network of ESG legislation is currently emerging that will stipulate the levels of risk reporting, due diligence and remediation that are required within the supply chain.
The French Vigilance Law which was adopted in 2017 dictates that French companies (and French Subsidiaries of overseas companies) of a certain size are required to establish and effectively implement due diligence measures to identify and prevent human rights violations and environmental damage.
The Child Labour Due Diligence Act which was passed in the Netherlands in 2019 and is expected to come into effect in 2022. It requires companies providing goods or services to the Dutch market identify and prevent the use of child labor in their supply chains
Perhaps the most notable recent regulatory development is the March 2021 EU directive on Mandatory Human Rights, Environmental and Good Governance Due Diligence for companies operating in the EU. Although not a binding initiative, the European Commission is expected to table a binding due diligence directive for all companies operating on the EU market by June 2021.
A key aim of the Directive is to ensure that businesses operating within, and supplying goods to, the EU respect human rights, the environment and good governance. This is expected to take the form of obliging EU Member States to legislate to require ESG due diligence and ongoing monitoring on such businesses to identify and assess whether their operations and business relationships cause or contribute to any human rights, environmental or governance risks. It adds that where such risks are identified then due diligence strategies are to be established to identify, disclose and mitigate ESG risks found within the supply chain.
To date the early adopters have primarily been European. However, the US and Canada are also developing their own legislative frameworks to combat forced labour. Although, the US lacks national legislation, under the 2010 California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, companies of a certain size doing business in California are obliged to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct product supply chains. Canada is also proposing a Modern Slavery Act that is currently before the senate. Under this act, any Canadian business with (among other stipulations) C$ 40 million in revenue is required to annually report on its anti-modern slavery policies, procedures, training and risk management.
