3. Expectations towards companies and support services
3.2 Clarification of due diligence
As the consultation events organized by the working group, it was suggested that a new statutory obligation on due diligence should be established for companies when implementing the UN principles on a national level.
As a follow-up measure, the working group proposes that:
Companies, NGOs and other key stakeholders are invited to a roundtable discussion by branch of activity. For example, the discussion could begin with the forest industry, the consumer goods trade and textile industry. With the discussions, an attempt shall be made to create a dialogue amongst various stakeholders and to establish the essential risks for each branch of activity. – page 26
