The EU legislative proposal on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence calls for the development of accompanying measures to support its successful implementation and avoid unintended consequences for suppliers and producer groups in exporting countries. With this paper, the European Commission’s department for International Partnerships and the International Trade Centre seek to guide the formulation of effective accompanying support to the implementation of the legislation that maximizes the opportunities of mandatory due diligence for suppliers in developing countries, while avoiding any negative effects on their sustainable development and trade with the EU.
