Human Rights Investigations in Complex Supply Chains

June 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

In this free webinar, an expert panel will discuss:

  • how companies with wide-ranging supply chains can effectively assess and mitigate ESG risks with a particular focus on human rights issues,
  • how corporates can ensure meaningful compliance with new legislation like the corporate sustainability due diligence directive, and 
  • practical strategies and best practices for cross-jurisdictional human rights investigations. 

These challenges are topical for companies across Europe and the US as they face increasingly complex regulatory requirements and a shifting geopolitical landscape impacting their supply chains.
