On 24th April, the European Parliament voted and adopted the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD), meaning it is now a legal responsibility for companies in the European Union (EU) to comply with the sustainability legislation and regulations indicated in the directive. Not complying with, or violating, legal requirements will lead to a significant financial or social impact for the company to bear.
While CSDDD is taking into effect in the EU, the directive also influences companies currently doing business in China. The impact of CSDDD spreads across the entire supply chain, potentially impacting all business partners and more importantly, the value chain. The due diligence expectations of CSDDD mean companies need to have awareness of the directive and prepare for the practical actions necessary for the company’s supply chain to comply.
The influence of CSDDD goes beyond geographical boundaries and extends across company functions and departments including the supply chain, procurement, finance and marketing, and legal teams.
So, what actions should your company take to comply with CSDDD? What are the implications for your business operations, compliance and company excellence? Join us at the event on 13th June to hear insights and best practices from experienced lawyers from Europe, sustainability experts, academia and industry.

[Background 背景]

With over four decades of foreign-funded enterprises entering China, accompanied by China’s opening-up policy and active promotion of foreign investment, the legal framework applicable to foreign-funded enterprises has been continuously evolving. In order to provide a favorable and equitable business environment for foreign investment, the Foreign Investment Law came into effect in 2020, replacing the three old laws related to foreign investment and marking a new chapter where foreign-funded enterprises are equally subject to the Company Law. To meet the demands of economic development, the Company Law was revised at the end of last year and will come into effect on July 1, 2024. This revision proposes numerous new requirements concerning registered capital system, rights and responsibilities of shareholders, directors, supervisors and senior executives which will undoubtedly bring both new opportunities and challenges for foreign-funded enterprises.
外企入华四十余载,伴随着中国对外开放、积极引入外资的进程,适用于外资企业的法律法规也在不断变迁。为了给予外资优良公平的营商环境,《外商投资法》于2020年开始施行,旧三资法相应废止并归入历史,外资企业翻开了平等适用《公司法》的发展新篇章。为了适应经济发展需求,《公司法》于去年底通过修订并将于2024年7月1日起施行。此次修订对注册资本制度、股东及董监高权责提出了诸多新要求,必将为外资企业带来全新的机遇与挑战。

“Capital” and “Person” have always been the two cornerstones for development of enterprises. Through this presentation, we will summarize the legislative evolution in recent years affecting foreign-funded enterprises, focusing on the impact of the new regulatory framework under Company Law from the perspectives of “Capital” and “Person” which are critical to corporate governance and operations. We will discuss topics such as capital contributions of shareholders, capital increase and decrease, equity transfer procedures, appointment of legal representatives, corporate governance structures, shareholders’ rights and responsibilities, rights and responsibilities of directors, supervisors, and senior executives, as well as risks and safeguards related to their roles.
“资”与“人”,向来是企业发展的两大基石。通过本次分享活动,我们将归纳近年来涉及外资企业的立法演进,重点从关涉公司治理与经营的“资”与“人”之角度探讨新的公司法规制模式对外资企业的影响,对股东出资、公司增资减资、股权转让、法定代表人的选任、公司治理结构、股东权责、董监高权责及任职风险与保障等方面进行探讨。
