Set to come into effect soon, the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD or CS3D) requires corporations to meticulously evaluate the sustainability footprint of their products or services. This directive aims to identify and manage sustainability risks within their operations and supply chains.

Moreover, the directive imposes a reporting obligation, mandating companies to submit a declaration that they have conducted thorough supply chain due diligence to uphold sustainability.
