On 15 June, the EBU published the second installment of the Sustainability Rulebook. This is a series will be informing Members on a new regulation on sustainability coming from the EU.
Our second instalment introducesThe Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). This legislation requires companies to establish due diligence procedures to address adverse impacts of their actions on human rights and the environment, including along their value chains worldwide. The aim is to foster sustainable and responsible corporate behaviour and to introduce sustainability considerations in companies’ operations and corporate governance.
The CSDDD is part of the European Green Deal – a set of policy initiatives by the European Commission aiming to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions and achieve climate-neutrality by 2050.
There is a long list of sustainable initiatives in the pipeline that are set to transform the media sector over the coming years. The EBU is here to help and guide public service media through these changes.
