transparency, Lieferkettengesetz, supply chain law
Supply chain compliance is currently the subject of intense public debate under the heading of "Lieferkettengesetz". Three German federal ministries are involved, some of which have different views. Germany is virtually at the centre of events here: our economic system of large corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises, strong trade unions and moderate political parties committed to the Soziale Marktwirtschaft enables a serious and "mature" discussion on the subject of minimum ethical standards in the supply chain. As a strong exporting nation, we have a great responsibility for this topic.
