In order to anchor human rights in global supply and value chains, the German government will create binding regulations for the implementation of human rights due diligence in companies with the Due Diligence Act. This law will oblige companies based in Germany above a certain size to better fulfill their responsibility in the supply chain with regard to respect for internationally recognized human rights by implementing the core elements of human rights due diligence. Guidance for implementation is provided by the United Nations (UN) Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (NAP).

The next online seminar will provide an overview of the current German regulations and European initiatives and is intended to provide assistance in implementing human rights due diligence in companies. There will be a focus on risk analysis. The online tools, the CSR Risk Check and the SME Compass show the practical implementation.

The German government's Business & Human Rights Helpdesk informs, advises and supports companies in meeting the human rights due diligence requirements of the United Nations and the German government. The advisory service is confidential and free of charge. You can find our services on our Webseite.
