There is a notable shift from voluntary initiatives towards hard law solutions, in particular disclosure and due diligence requirements. The argument I pursue is that the disclosure measures introduced internationally and nationally only partially assist the efforts to achieve sustainability. Such measures are limited to achieve transparency, but they do not necessarily achieve progress in their substantive outcomes. Due diligence is more promising but to bring about the desired outcomes will require more active engagement with stakeholders, social movements and third parties.
