The day after the vote: how will the Responsible Business Initiative change your business?

Either result of the popular vote on the Responsible Business Initiative will bring increased reporting and due diligence requirements for Swiss companies.

In June 2020, the Swiss Parliament agreed on an indirect counterproposal for the Responsible Business Initiative (RBI). The public vote will take place on 29 November 2020. If the Swiss electorate rejects the RBI, the counterproposal will automatically be adopted. Regardless of the outcome, many Swiss companies will face increased reporting and due diligence requirements, so it’s important to keep up with these developments.
