The European Union is developing a new supply chain law – the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) – to hold European Union (EU) brands responsible for human rights and environmental abuses in their supply chains. Jointly convened by Partners in Change and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre in Delhi, this workshop will bring together a range of allies from trade unions, labour groups and broader civil society to discuss the new law, the change that it aims to create and how workers’ groups can use the new law to push employers and buyers to take action on human rights and labour issues. issues.

For too long European brands in sectors from garments to mining to agriculture have not been held accountable when they abuse rights and destroy the environment. This new law could begin to change this – but only if workers know their rights and are ready to use the tools contained in the law to their advantage. And importantly, the new law must take into account the needs and realities across the supply chain, including the Indian context.

This workshop is aimed at grassroots unions, labour rights groups and other civil society organisations which engage with supply chains involving European buyers or brands. Although the CSDDD also covers environmental issues, this workshop will mainly focus on labour rights issues.
