In the EU, a cross-thematic due diligence obligation, liability provisions and supervisory authorities are planned. The guidelines go further than the rejected Swiss corporate responsibility initiative, as the petitioners said.

The “huge response” to the petition shows that the population does not want Switzerland to soon be the only country in Europe without corporate responsibility, as the statement said. The collection of signatures started on August 20th. (SDA)
