In recent weeks, it looked like the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) would not get enough support in the Council, but on 15 March 2024, the necessary qualified majority was obtained. The core of the compromise agreement reached in December 2023 remains intact, meaning that companies falling within the CSDDD's scope will need to adhere to rules that foster sustainable and responsible corporate conduct and anchor human rights and environmental factors in corporate operations and governance.
