German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (SCDDA) – German: Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz, short: “LkSG”)) imposes several new obligations on companies, known as “due diligence obligations,” to prevent human rights violations in supply chains. The German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act aims to hold large companies accountable for supply chain operations. This is primarily in terms of human rights abuses, child labor, forced labor, and environmental damage. Companies with more than 500 employees are required to perform due diligence throughout their supply chain under the updated act.
