India is one of the fastest growing economies worldwide holding numerous opportunities for investors. Despite rapid growth, German companies operating in India are faced with a number of sustainability challenges such as bribery and corruption, discrimination, inadequate working conditions in the supply chain and environmental degradation.
Increasingly, governments, investors and shareholders, business partners, civil society and consumers expect companies of all sizes to have human rights due diligence processes in place to know and show that they respect human rights. The upcoming German National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (NAP) will concretize expectations towards German companies including their subsidiaries and supply chains. Similar processes have started in other countries, e.g. UK Modern Slavery Act.
To support German companies operating in India and their business partners in implementing these expectations, the Global Compact Network Germany will pilot a cross-sectoral introductory training in autumn 2016.
