FAQs

We address some of the basics below to help you along your LkSG compliance and trust transformation journey.

The German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz or “LkSG”)  is a corporate due diligence act focused on sustainability and protecting human rights in supply chains. It requires companies to identify any human rights violations and environmental risks with their direct suppliers as well as their indirect suppliers if needed. Enforcement begins on January 1, 2023, and applies to German companies as well as foreign companies that operate branch offices in the country. 

Applicable companies must perform regular risk assessments, establish preventative measures to mitigate potential risks, create complaint procedures, and take immediate remedial action if violations were found. They must appoint a risk management administrator and adopt a corporate human rights strategy. Companies must also document their progress and make annual reports to the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA).
