BRUSSELS - Members of the European Parliament have given their backing to the EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (EU CSDD) directive which would make companies liable for human rights and environmental issues in their global supply chains.

A plenary session of the European Parliament backed the mandatory due diligence legislation with 366 MEPs voting in favour, 225 against and 38 abstentions.

A late bid to water down a cross-party deal on the legislation largely failed - although article 26 of the directive, which would have made company directors legally responsible for due diligence, was rejected.
