This publication, issued by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS), was developed as part of the energy sector dialogue. It provides an overview of the potential risks along the supply and value chains of six selected sectors of the industry (photovoltaics, wind energy, electricity distribution grids, natural gas, battery storage, hydrogen).
For companies in the German energy industry, this publication can serve as a guidance tool. It can help companies to meet requirements arising from the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG) and the planned EU Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence (CSDDD).
In addition, this publication represents a basic document for further cooperation in the energy sector dialogue.
