European Union officials recently proposed a far-reaching ban on the sale of goods made with forced labor, a move that follows U.S. policy that could prompt companies of all sizes to increase scrutiny of their supply chains.

Michael Littenberg, partner and global head of the ESG, CSR and business and human rights practice, commented in The Wall Street Journal on the EU proposal to ban the sale of goods made with forced labor.

Michael explained that many companies are already adopting forced-labor-compliance strategies that look beyond the legal requirements of one jurisdiction, and instead favor a broader approach. “Most sophisticated companies are really trying to look at this holistically,” said Michael.
