Joint Business Statement on the due diligence proposal (CS3D)

Independent Retail Europe supports an effective, fair and practicable EU due diligence framework. Therefore, we, together with 26 other EU industry, service, trade and retail associations, call for a level playing field, realistic, proportional, and workable obligations on companies, and guidance to truly enable and guide businesses in taking the necessary steps towards more sustainable supply chains.

For this purpose, the business community has put forward a number of recommendations and concerns to enhance the benefits of a Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CS3D).
