The German law on corporate due diligence in supply chains, also known as the Sustainable Supply Chain Law, has now been in force for four months. Similar laws in other countries have a longer history. Overall, efforts by Western lawmakers to regulate domestic companies and encourage, if not require, compliance with human rights, labour, and environmental standards along their entire value chain are picking up steam.
The University of Adelaide, through its Institute for International Trade, has established the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Trade and Environment. Funded by the EU’s Erasmus Plus programme, the COE will work across the University, including its Environment Institute and Institute for Sustainability and Resources, to catalyse research into linkages between international trade and the environment. The COE will also emphasise stakeholder and community engagement to raise awareness of these linkages.
