Last spring, the EU Parliament paved the way for a due diligence law requiring corporations to assume responsibility for their supply chains. We sent over 2'500 postcards to Ursula von der Leyen, asking her to push the European Commission for a robust due diligence law. That's just what she did, and the law is nearly at the finish line.
Negotiations are currently underway between the EU Council, Parliament, Commission and the individual member states. Join us once again in pressuring decision-makers by sending them an Angry Gorilla postcard. The message is clear: They need to push for the supply chain law to be adopted as quickly as possible, with no compromises.
Incidentally, the due diligence law also affects Switzerland. If it is passed, Switzerland will soon be the only country in Europe without laws on corporate social responsibility. Once that happens, perhaps Swiss policymakers will take action! What's more, the law will also apply to large Swiss companies that generate sales in the EU.
SEND A POSTCARD NOW!
Send your Angry Gorilla postcard to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz or the Austrian Federal Minister of Labour and Economy, Martin Kocher. Each of them has a key negotiating position in the decision-making process in their respective countries.

Chocolate has a problem
Most cocoa producers can't make a living from their work.
What's wrong in the cocoa trade
Cocoa farming is closely linked to poverty, illegal deforestation and child labour. Stricter rules for corporations could change that.Read more
