On 15 March 2024, the Council of the EU published a letter it had sent to the Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Legal Affairs concerning the proposed Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence and amending the Whistleblower Directive. The letter states that following informal trilogue between the three institutions on 13 December 2023 a draft compromise package (set out in an annex to the letter) has now been agreed by the Permanent Representatives Committee. The letter further provides that should the European Parliament adopt its position at first reading in the form set out in the compromise package the Council of the EU would approve the European Parliament’s position.
