The French Duty of Vigilance: A Comparative Perspective on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence

The English & Wales section of the Franco-British Lawyers Society (FBLS) would like to invite you to join us for a panel on The French Duty of Vigilance: A Comparative Perspective on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence, in partnership with the French Embassy, on Wednesday 20 March from 5-6.30 pm at the University of Westminster, 309 Regent Street, W1B 2HW London.

 

Lady Arden, President of the FBLS, will chair the panel. Francois Gave, Special Representative for CSR and the Social Dimension of Globalisation at the French Ministry of Europe, will introduce the 2017 French law on the Duty of Vigilance, alongside a judge from the Cour de cassation, who will discuss the implementation of the law. Dr Catherine Pédamon will share an English perspective on this topic, and for instance, discuss, among others, the Vedanta v Lungowe and Okpabi v Shell cases. We will also be covering some aspects of the European draft Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence whose vote by the Council of the EU was postponed on Friday 9 February.
