CSDDD – Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive – How to integrate smartly into ways of working

CSDDD will affect all businesses in some way and Procurement in particular. How do we integrate new ways of working in a business that is growing as fast as a start up? We need to transform and update our existing processes in order to create value while minimizing added workload.  In other words, we need to work better and smarter.


  • CSDDD is a new regulation that we see as a necessity for our business even without the legal requirement – good for business in terms of shareholders, customers and other stakeholders.
  • How should we organise ourselves in order to work better and smarter?
  • The legislation is still being clarified – how far should we go? What about Tier-N suppliers?
  • What level is good enough? What information do we need about our suppliers and how do we monitor our supplier base?
