Legal Awareness

Our industry is experiencing an increasing amount of globally impactful legislation from various countries, intended to identify and root out human rights violations in the production and shipment of products and vehicles. Current legislation in the U.S. and select European countries is also anticipated to be a template for proposed and pending legislation in multiple countries. As such, the degree of company compliance required will likely need to be global, regional, or even national, depending on the business footprint.

Moving forward, our challenge is to not only create industry awareness, but to bring forward resources to help companies navigate this potentially disruptive and costly supply chain risk.
