Joint cocoa sector coalition calls for ambitious human rights and environmental legislation.

Monday, 18 October 2021

A group of companies, NGOs, certification organisations and multistakeholder organisations has furthered its calls to the EU, demanding ambitious human rights and environmental due diligence legislation.

The legislation should apply to all companies, without exclusions, should allow for a broad mix of means of enforcement including the option for civil liability, and should cover a wide range of rights including the right to a living income.

The call for regulation can be found here, and a full press release can be read here.
