News Alert: EU Due Diligence Law Approved by European Governments

Exciting news from Europe: the EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive has been approved by a qualified majority of EU governments!

This is a significant step towards protecting human rights and the environment from harm from big corporations, like the tobacco industry.

ASH has been monitoring and engaging in this process for several years.

In February 2021, ASH and a group of our tobacco control colleagues, including Smoke Free Partnership and Unfairtobacco, led by the Belgian Alliance for a Smoke Free Society, submitted input for the public consultation by the European Commission on mandatory human rights and environmental due diligence.
