This virtual event, organised by the European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils Network (EEAC Network), focused on the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). EU Member States will have to ensure that large companies conduct human rights and environmental diligence at the level of own operations, operations of their subsidiaries and value chain operations of entities with which the company has an established business relationship. The webinar focused on Article 15 of the draft directive, which will require companies to also adopt a plan to ensure their business model and strategy are compatible with the objective of achieving climate neutrality by 2050.

This webinar aimed at offering an overview on the obligation of companies to define and implement plans to ensure compatibility with the transition to a carbon neutral and sustainable economy in accordance with the latest developments of the CSDDD proposal.c Beyond the implementation process, the panel of high-level experts addressed key issues such as possible supporting guidance and best practices, and the role of national initiatives to promote corporate climate commitments. Additionally, we set out the challenges of the directive’s transposition by the Member States.
