An ESG legislative minefield for multinationals

Companies that operate internationally face complex ESG-related challenges and potential exposure across multiple jurisdictions.

Their business practices and models must therefore be adapted to comply with the developing rules and regulations, such as the newly passed EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive, in all the countries in which they operate.

In this article for European Business Magazine, Maria Cronin discusses how ESG-related legislation and regulations are increasingly targeting all types of business models and supply chain, and how there is no ‘one-size fits all’ approach when it comes to compliance.

Maria also discusses how organisations are having to navigate the clash between ESG goals, ethics and political agendas and the challenges of keeping up with legislative and geopolitical developments.
