Sustainable and fair trade 

These guidelines form the basis of the upcoming EU Due Diligence legislation. This law makes companies responsible for their own business activities as well as those of trading partners in the chain. The law aims to reduce abuse in the areas of human rights and the environment. The FNLI thus assumes its responsibility for sustainable and fair trade on behalf of its member industries and companies. As with the other IMVO covenants, progress is monitored and there is an annual report. 

Making progress concrete 

With a clear, thematic report, we charted the progress of the covenant and showed the efforts of the FNLI and its members in the context of the EU Due Diligence legislation. The quantitative progress of the covenant is supported by visual elements that the FNLI presented to the Social and Economic Council as a separate report. With a clear narrative on this EU legislation and practical examples from the cocoa, palm oil, soy, rice, cashew nut and coffee sectors, this report adds value to FNLI members.
