Deutsche Börse Group. The Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (Lieferkettensorgfaltspflichtengesetz – LkSG)

Welcome to the information and registration page of Deutsche Börse Group.

On June 11th, 2021, the German Bundestag passed a law on corporate due diligence to prevent human rights violations and environmental damage in supply chains: The Supply Chain Due Diligence Act. The LkSG introduces comprehensive mandatory due diligence requirements related to Governance, Risk Management and Reporting, all targeting the identification of risks of human and environmental rights violations along the supply chain and a business’ own operations.

As one of our suppliers, we want to inform you that we will cooperate with the service provider EcoVadis in the future. To meet our obligations, EcoVadis will perform sustainability and risk assessments for all suppliers of Deutsche Börse Group.

Your participation in this process is critical to the implementation of the previously described obligations and is important to our continued business relationship. For this reason, we thank you for your commitment by participating in this strategic initiative.
