The Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive aims to hold companies accountable for human rights abuses and environmental damage along their entire value chain. With the vote in the EU Parliament's Legal Affairs Committee on 25 April 2023, in which the report by EP rapporteur Lara Wolters (S&D) was adopted, the legislation has cleared an important hurdle. The vote in the plenary of the EU Parliament will now follow on 1 June 2023.
