Human Rights Due Diligence

Human rights due diligence (HRDD) is central to the execution of corporate responsibility. We assist companies in comprehending the intricacies and requirements of HRDD and support its practical implementation.


Sustainability due diligence plays the key role in corporate responsibility 

Sustainability due diligence, as outlined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, plays a pivotal role in corporate responsibility regulation, a stance also adopted by EU legislation. A thorough understanding of sustainability due diligence, encompassing both human rights and environmental aspects, is essential before any actionable steps are taken.

This duty varies, setting different standards for companies of diverse sizes.
