EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive initiative in Mexico
The Belgian Mexican Business Chamber, in collaboration with Van Bael & Bellis and VTZ, is proud to organize the webinar about the «The Effects of the EU Corporate Sustainability Directive (CSDD) initiative in Mexico».
About the Directive Initiative
In February 2022, the EU published a proposal for a Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive. It will require certain large EU and non-EU companies to set up mandatory due diligence practices in order to identify, prevent or mitigate, and ultimately terminate adverse impacts of their corporate activities on human rights and the environment.
The draft initiative also introduces a specific climate change obligation and a duty of care for directors linked to sustainability matters.
Key-Note Speaker From Belgium
Our keynote speaker, Philippe de Baere from the from the Brussels law firm Van Bael & Bellis, will explain if and how this may affect you in Mexico when doing business with a European company or Europe-linked business.
With the help of moderator Emilio Arteaga of VTZ, he will walk you through all aspects of the EU directive initiative, also focusing on the liability and implications for companies in case of lack of due diligence in the identification and prevention of environmental risks.
