AmCham EU, along with twelve European associations committed to building a strong European Single Market, has signed a letter adressed to Prime Minister Kristersson, President Metsola and President von der Leyen, calling for the urgent consideration of a level playing field for the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CS3D). The letter follows a statement by the Joint Association Roundtable (JAR) earlier this year, detailing ways in which the proposed directive could be improved to be made more workable for companies to be able comply with the due diligence requirements. As we celebrate thirty years of one of the EU’s greatest achievements, the Single Market, the undersigned associations hope that policymakers will consider giving this matter heightened attention in order to achieve the aim of the legislation – to foster sustainable and responsible corporate behaviour, anchored to human rights and environmental considerations.
