The Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG) came into effect on January 1, 2023. It applies to companies in Germany with a minimum of 3,000 employees starting from 2023 and subsequently extends to those with at least 1,000 employees from 2024.
The primary components of the due diligence obligations involve establishing a risk management system to identify, prevent, or mitigate the risks associated with human rights violations and environmental damage. These obligations apply to the company's business operations, as well as the activities of contractual partners and other (indirect) suppliers. It contains a list of 11 international recognized human rights conventions (e.g. ILO core labor standards) and 3 environmental conventions (Minamata Convention; Production and use of persistent organic pollutants, POPs; Basel Convention).
Management system standards (MSS) help companies to effectively manage operations and supply chains, with enhanced risk management and adherence to applicable laws and regulations.
