Recent EU Initiatives Focus on Sustainability, Forced Labor

At the EU level, three significant texts aimed at reinforcing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) compliance among corporations are currently being drafted: a proposed directive to implement and strengthen corporate reporting obligations relating to human rights and the environment; a proposed directive to create an EU legal framework on sustainable corporate governance, including cross-sector corporate due diligence along global value chains; and a proposed regulation to prohibit products made with forced labor on the EU market.
