Joint Statement on EU Directive On Mandatory Human Rights Due Diligence

International Code of Conduct Association Stand: B72
EU Flag

The new EU directive on mandatory due diligence for companies doesn’t pay enough attention to the risks at play in conflict-affected and high-risk areas.

Many EU-based businesses operate in conflict-affected and high-risk areas. They face a high risk of becoming involved in severe human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law.

The EU needs to ensure greater alignment of its policies with the UN Guiding Principles, which require states and companies to conduct heightened, conflict-sensitive due diligence when active in these areas.

ICoCA joins a number of organisations and academic professionals active in the field of business, conflict and human rights to call for change.
