We Support the EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD)

We, committed members of the Scandinavian Textile Initiative for Climate Action (STICA) Company Climate Action Program, represent a significant part of the apparel industry in the Nordic region. Our ambition is to be leaders when it comes to environmental performance and human rights due diligence. This includes our commitment to meeting science-based targets for greenhouse gas emissions reductions. 

We support the EU Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD). We see this as an important opportunity to raise the bar and strengthen responsible business practices. An EU level framework would also mitigate fragmentation of national initiatives and thus lead to a more level playing field so we can continue working towards the much needed transformation of our industry which includes respecting human rights and thriving within the planetary boundaries. 

We need bold and courageous leadership from both policy makers and business. Therefore, we encourage national governments, the European Commission and the European parliament to come together to find an agreement on this important legislation.
