Laws & Regulation

Laws and regulatory requirements at the national and EU levels are gradually being introduced to mitigate the impact of climate change and strengthen corporate and social responsibility in global supply chains. What are these laws and requirements? We provide an overview!


The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) is an EU directive that obliges companies within the EU to report on their sustainability aspects. The directive includes clear specifications with the ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards) on how this sustainability reporting should be created.


The German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (abbreviated as Lieferkettengesetz) has been in effect since January 1, 2023. To protect human rights, companies must disclose their supply chains.


The EU Taxonomy is a new assessment procedure by the EU Commission. It defines the topic of sustainability, provides uniform European requirements, and provides a clear framework for when an activity is to be classified as economically sustainable.

Why we need to act now?

Sustainability begins with responsibility

73 million children are exploited for our chocolate, coffee, and phones. New laws aim to prevent this with all their might.
A T-shirt travels 18,000 km before it reaches a store in Germany. A long journey that must be organized in fair supply chains.
Global value chains account for about 80% of world trade. Pure profit and maximum gain are now being curbed by ESG standards.
Compared to the 1970s, climate disasters have increased fivefold. Sustainable and automated CO2 management is long overdue.

Committed to the 1.5-degree target

Acting earlier means staying sustainable for longer

The 1.5-degree target adopted by most countries at the Paris Climate Summit in 2015 compels us to take action: every individual and especially large companies with global supply chains. Gradually, stricter laws and regulations are coming into effect at the national and EU levels. However, what many companies perceive as a legally imposed burden is associated with numerous opportunities. For customers, investors, and stakeholders, sustainability is becoming an increasingly powerful competitive advantage. We provide insights on what lies ahead for you and how to fulfill your obligations. Many tasks can be accomplished with the push of a button, marking a crucial beginning. Consider the new laws and regulations as opportunities!

Sustainability as a Competitive Advantage

Sustainably operating businesses are more successful

Companies above a certain size and financial threshold are legally obligated to report on their emissions, sustainability strategies, and goals. However, most companies act not because they have to but because they want to, and for good reasons:

Preventing Risks Along the Supply Chain.
Enhancing Corporate Image.
Increasing Attractiveness as an Employer.
