Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive and its imposition of penalties and civil liability

Welcome to another Corporate Compliance Network meeting on June 4th.

The network meeting is for compliance professionals and aims to serve as a forum for industry key players to learn, exchange ideas, and discuss critical compliance issues. This time we will dig deeper into the requirements of Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD).

A distinctive aspect of CSDDD is imposition of penalties and expanded civil liability. This session will focus on clarifying what causation and contribution may mean in subsidiary and business partner settings, as well as how effective due diligence can minimize both the risks of harm and reduce the potential for fines and litigation. Special attention will be given to understanding the crucial role of remediation in this context.

The presentation will be followed by a group discussion on the topic where you can address your questions or concerns regarding the new requirements. After the discussion there will be a mingle from 17:00 in KPMG's premises, where you will have the chance to discuss further. Please let us know if there are other compliance professionals in your organization you want us to send this invitation to as well.

We look forward to seeing you!
