The German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG): A Simple Guide

Germany’s Act on Corporate Due Diligence in Supply Chains comes into force on 1 January 2023. Like similar legislative initiatives in the UK and France, the Act looks to safeguard human rights and environmental standards by obligating companies to identify, eliminate or minimise risks in relation to both direct and indirect suppliers.

With over 20 years' experience in helping companies comply with ESG legislation - including the UK Modern Slavery Act and France's Devoir de Vigilance - we are uniquely placed to help you prepare for the Act's implementation. This simple guide breaks down the Act’s key obligations, while outlining how our expert team of analysts and consultants can help your organisation prepare for, comply with and derive value from the new legislative requirements.
