"OPEN LETTER The EU must uphold Human Rights: Defenders’ call for a Human-Rights centred CSDDD", 7 Dec 2023

Ahead of what may be the final political trilogue negotiations on the EU Corporate sustainability due diligence (CSDDD), 93 Human Rights and environmental defenders and CSO from the Global South send a letter to the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, as well as the rapporteur Lara Wolters and the Commissioner for Justice, Mr Didier Reynders, calling for a directive that protects human rights and our planet first beyond “business as usual”.

Global South defenders' key demands

  1. Protect our Rights and the Environment
  2. Protect our Climate and our Future
  3. Defend our Rights and Access to Justice
  4. Make sure we are taken into account – meaningful and safe stakeholder engagement
  5. Ensure obligations for all those who cause harm
