New Regulations of Global Trade : European companies, commodity chains and socio-environmental sustainability in South America

Webinar:

06 October 2021, 6.00 PM – 06 October 2021, 7.00 PM:

European companies, commodity chains and socio-environmental sustainability in South America:

In recent years, binding regulations in the ‘home states’ of companies have emerged mainly in the Global North with the aim of holding companies accountable for environmental and/or human rights impacts throughout their supply chains. These regulations challenge and broaden the scope of corporate accountability that until now has had a narrow focus on accountability towards shareholders and consumers. Unsurprisingly, the passage of these laws has been accompanied by highly conflictual politics. During the webinar, we discuss the drafting and institutional design of European mandatory due diligence policies, as well as their implementation in the supply chains of soy, beef, and minerals from Brazil and Peru.
