Sustainable Supply Chains - CSDDD Fundamentals Training Course

Navigate the New Norms of Corporate Responsibility with Our CSDDD Training Course

In an era where corporate accountability is no longer optional but a mandate, the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) marks a significant shift in how businesses operate within the European Union and beyond. The directive requires companies to identify risks relating to human rights and environmental violations and to take preventive action to counter these risks. The management of potential and actual risks is at the center of the directive. Compliance with the CSDDD is not just about adhering to legal requirements; it's about transforming your operations to safeguard your reputation, manage risks and secure a competitive edge in a sustainably-driven market.

Our CSDDD training course provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the legal responsibilities for human rights and environmental standards that form the core of corporate due diligence. Learners will gain a comprehensive overview of all the obligations outlined in the CSDDD and explore how to develop and implement a transition plan effectively. The course concludes with the introduction of a practical guideline, which participants will apply to initiate their organization's CSDDD compliance process. This hands-on approach ensures that every participant leaves equipped to start integrating CSDDD principles into their company's operations immediately.
Regulatory Framework
The new Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) is a directive proposed by the European Commission that aims to ensure European companies are accountable for human rights and environmental impacts within their global supply chains. It requires companies to identify, address, and remedy their impact on human rights and the environment throughout their supply chains. This includes preventing and mitigating risks and establishing grievance mechanisms. The directive applies to large companies operating in the EU, regardless of where their supply chains are located and affects a wide range of sectors.
Additional Regulatory Frameworks:
ILO Fundamental Conventions, OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct and UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
