THE HAGUE - Proposed legislation in the Netherlands to make companies responsible for environmental and human rights issues in their supply chain would be compromised if it only applied to bigger companies, according to a new report.

The Netherlands is looking to follow the lead of countries such as Germany, Norway and France in introducing a mandatory due diligence law which makes companies liable for breaches unless they can show they have carried out due diligence.

But the Dutch Bill on Responsible and Sustainable International Business Conduct would only apply to companies with more than 250 employees which would include only a third of the members of the Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textiles (AGT).
