EU legislation that holds companies accountable for human rights abuses and environmental damage

Your substances


This report tells five stories of EU-based companies involved in human rights abuses and environmental degradation around the world, from South America to Sub-Saharan Africa to Southeast Asia. The cases in this report show why there is an urgent need for the EU to enact mandatory human rights and environmental due diligence (mHREDD). It is at least as important that such a law make transnational companies based in the EU liable for the damage they cause in their foreign branches and along their entire value chain, and that the victims of corporate abuse have access to the judiciary in those countries.
