LONDON - Campaigners are calling on the UK to follow in the footsteps of European countries, such as France, Germany and Norway, by introducing a mandatory due diligence law which would make companies responsible for human rights and environmental breaches in their global supply chains.

A total of 29 organisations, including the Trades Union Congress (TUC), Friends of the Earth and Amnesty International, say that voluntary efforts have failed to tackle systemic human rights abuses and environmentally-destructive practices in the supply chains of British businesses.

They want the UK government to follow the lead of some EU countries which have introduced legislation making all companies which operate in their markets responsible for breaches unless they can show they have carried out due diligence.
