A strong law against corporate abuse

Unless we act, a new EU law to protect human rights and the environment will become a weak ‘tick-box’ exercise for big business.

Sweatshops, deforestation, child labour. We have an historic opportunity to stop these and other abuses by big business across the globe.

The European Union is creating a new law that could force companies to clean up their supply chains and allow victims of abuse to take companies to court in Europe.

But not everyone is in favour of this law.

If the corporate lobby has its way, the law will be a toothless, ‘tick-box’ exercise. They’ll ensure it’s a weak law, which is worse than no law at all.

But we won’t let that happen.

Right now, EU member states are negotiating the law.

Take action now by emailing Minister of State, Robert Troy, asking him to ensure that Ireland argues in favour of a strong law that actually has teeth.

Just fill in your details and press send. The pre-written email below will be sent to Minister Troy.
