Is mandatory social and environmental due diligence coming to the UK?

House of lords

Our latest debate at the House of Lords considered The Commercial Organisation and Public Authorities Duty (COPAD) Bill, which would introduce an obligation on companies and public authorities to prevent human rights and environmental harm throughout their operations, subsidiaries and value chains.

This is a Private Members Bill, proposed by Baroness Young, our host for the event, who opened the debate by explaining why such legislation is needed, highlighting the continued environmental and human rights abuses that occur in supply chains.

Following an introduction to the debate from Sian Lea of Anti-Slavery International, guests were given the opportunity to discuss the proposed Bill in detail, consider if and why it might be necessary and, if passed, what its potential impact on UK organisations might be.

Why investing in women in the workplace matters

The Women, Business and the Law 2024 report revealed a concerning reality: while 95 countries have equal pay laws, only 35 enforce measures to narrow the wage gap.  Globally, women earn just 77 cents for every dollar men earn and, despite comprising half the workforce, women hold less than one third of all managerial roles.

To mark international women's day 2024, GoodCorporation published an article  exploring how businesses can protect women's rights in the workplace and drive change.
