With our Angry Gorilla, we have been fighting for a strong EU due diligence law since spring 2023 and have put a lot of pressure on the politicians. Together, we sent over 3100 postcards to the decision-makers. Many thanks to everyone who took part!
What we have achieved so far
13 DECEMBER 2023
A milestone has been reached! In a decisive trilogue negotiation, the EU institutions approve the draft law. The upcoming approval of the law by the EU Council and Parliament is considered a formality.
Trilogue negotiations between the EU Council, Parliament and Commission and the national governments on the law begin in autumn. Our fight for the law enters the second round. Postcards can be sent to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Austrian Minister Martin Kocher at angry-gorilla.com.
