SustainabilityFocusHumanRightsMandatory Human Rights Due Diligence (mHRDD) laws are transforming the legal landscape for business. Faced with substantive due diligence requirements, sanctions for non-compliance, and heightened scrutiny from stakeholders, companies are scrambling to understand and incorporate mHRDD into their business models and supply chains. This panel will take a practical look at what companies can do to address these binding human rights-related rules. It will cover the Who, What, Where and How of mHRDD including trending legislation across jurisdictions and emerging best practices. Special emphasis will be placed on the overlap between mHRDD and the climate emergency, as well as the impending EU human rights and environmental due diligence legislation that may require corporates due diligence laws to align with the goals of the Paris Agreement.
SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
