German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG)

Turn the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act from a burden into an opportunity with Markant's LkSG service!

What is the LkSG & who does it affect?

In Germany, the new law on corporate due diligence to prevent human rights violations in supply chains applies to companies with at least 3,000 employees from 1 January 2023. Companies with at least 1,000 employees are obliged to do so from 1 January 2024. 

Even companies outside Germany may be directly covered by this law if they belong to a German group of companies and the parent company exercises a decisive influence on the group company. 

Suppliers are indirectly affected by the law, even if they have fewer employees or are not based in Germany. Service providers may also be direct suppliers.
