World Affairs-1

Not a day goes by without more news about the ongoing conflict in the Ukraine, the ramifications of which will be felt across supply chains for months if not years to come. The impact will be direct and indirect relating to commodities and energy.  Russia and Ukraine account for 29% of all the world's wheat exports, and Germany relies on Russian gas to power its electricity and energy grid by around 50%. The pursuit of billionaires in the Navalny 35 continues with the French seizing €850 million in a single day. Coordinated sanctions by many world governments are changing the dynamics of supply chains globally. 


The diversity, breadth and depth of legislation pertaining to environmental, social and governance (ESG) is growing and placing greater obligations on entities to report more comprehensively.  The German Federal Council has enacted a new piece of legislation to focus on child labor, slavery, safety in the workplace, employment and wage discrimination, and environmental harm. Effective on January 1, 2023, German companies with more than 3,000 employees will be required to prevent or at least minimize human rights and environmental rights infringements in their supply chains.
