Grievances pertaining to the German Supply Chain Act

Grievances pertaining to the German Supply Chain Act

The German Supply Chain Act (“LkSG”) obliges German companies to meet their global responsibilities.

Under Section 8 of the German Supply Chain Act (“LkSG”) BayernLB is required to install a mechanism for reporting grievances pertaining to human rights violations or environmental destruction, or to the risk of a human rights violation or environmental destruction, arising from its own scope of business* or the business activities of a direct supplier.

This Act applies furthermore to Bayerische Landesbodenkreditanstalt and to BayernLB’s foreign branches.
