      Why BISS/CAIGO is relevant for you

      Background: What is the LkSG about?

      It's about a lot: the aim of the LkSG is to improve the international human rights situation, sustainability and environmental protection. To this end, companies should fulfill their due diligence obligations and put their global supply relationships to the test to determine the extent to which production complies with appropriate standards..

      The German LkSG addresses seven of the seventeen ESG sustainability goals of the United Nations (UN), which primarily affect human rights. It also addresses environmental goals, as soil contamination or air and water pollution can directly affect the quality of life of people in producing countries. Sanctions are written into the law in the event that companies do not meet this due diligence obligation (to a sufficient degree). This is why we talk about "risks" that need to be checked.

      Which risks need to be audited?

      The range is broad and can be adapted according to the company profile: It ranges from the exclusion of child labor, compliance with human rights and freedoms, respect for property rights, and the anti-corruption index to climate and environmental protection and noise emissions.

      How is the audit carried out?

      Suppliers worldwide are surveyed by means of questionnaires. The effort involved is considerable: Around a quarter of the (currently) affected companies have up to 2,000 suppliers, and another quarter have up to 10,000 suppliers - counting only the direct suppliers!

      With BISS/CAIGO you have the entire process of external risk analysis under control:

      • 3
