Master Supply Chain Laws: Your Roadmap for the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettengesetz)


From January 1, 2023, the requirements of the German Supply Chain Act (Lieferkettengesetz) must be implemented in companies with more than 3,000 employees, and from 2024 for companies with more than 1,000 employees. This affects German companies, as well as organizations with an entity in Germany. The aim of this law is to comprehensively improve compliance with fundamental human rights and respect for environmental standards in supply chains. It sets out clear due diligence requirements, and violations are sanctioned. Not only the actions of your organization, but those of your suppliers and sub-tier suppliers, can put you at risk for fines, penalties, or damage to your reputation.

The German Supply Chain Act is only one of many legal challenges you have to face. The planned EU Directive on Corporate Due Diligence and Corporate Accountability will add a layer of complexity for companies operating in the EU.

Take action now! A transparent and sustainable supply chain is not just an obligation, but critical to the success of your business.

  • Why you should seize the opportunity to adopt a holistic supplier and supply chain risk management approach
  • Which top three measures you should already take now, and which mistakes you should avoid right from the start
