AIM-PROGRESS Human Rights legislation overview released

There has been a significant increase in human rights focused corporate responsibility legislation over the last few years, with more legislation on the horizon which directly affects companies' responsible sourcing programmes.

AIM-PROGRESS contracted the law firm Ropes & Gray, who have a leading ESG, CSR and supply chain compliance practice, to undertake regular reviews of this legal landscape. We are pleased to announce that the first edition of an overview of the current legal landscape regarding Human Rights, with focus on disclosure, due diligence, remediation and trade is now available. The added value of this particular exercise lies in the implementation diagrammes which have been added to each piece of legislation to illustrate whether and how the law applies to the company in question.

The document will be updated twice a year, with the next update foreseen for the autumn.
