Arica in campaign for Corporate Responsibility

Swedwatch and the European Coalition for Corporate Justice launch a campaign for stricter EU-regulations for corporate responsibility. The goal is to make EU-law include:

  1. A corporate duty to prevent harm
  2. European civil cause of action
  3. Fairer burdens of proof
  4. Reasonable time limits
  5. Financial risk mitigation

Reform of the EU legislation on corporate due diligence and corporate responsibility is currently discussed and is expected to be decided during 2022.
