Why is this important
The European Union says it wants to protect human rights and lead the way to a sustainable future.
But the wrongdoings keep adding up. For decades European companies have exploited workers, especially in poorer countries. They have displaced communities, leaving them without homes and ways to survive.Or chopped down ancient trees for corporate profit. So you’d forgive us for being sceptical.
People and the planet have paid the price of crooked corporations for too long. And quite frankly, we’re over it.
A fairer world is possible. One where business respects the rights of workers and the lives and livelihoods of communities, elevates producers out of poverty and allows the planet to thrive. One where people around the world can get justice if they have been harmed by bad business.
With rules to hold businesses accountable, the products we need will no longer be tainted by suffering and destruction.
In early 2022, the European Commission proposed a law to turn corporate accountability into a reality. But this is just the first step to cleaning up supply chains built on exploitation.
We need your help now to stand up against corporate lobbyists working hard behind the scenes to water down the proposal.
We must defend rules that really make business more just. Rules that work for you, us, and the planet we depend on.
