event announcements


The Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG) went into effect on January 1, 2023. To help companies understand how LkSG will change their business, we co-created an event to explore ideas and share startup solutions in logistics. Founders and experts from Baker McKenzie, Deloitte and Microsoft shared their most important challenges and use cases from the areas of compliance & risk, data & reporting and procurement.

Use cases were presented on risk identification and management based on the LkSG and BAFA requirements from three perspectives:

  • Legal: Thomas Gilles & Franz Kaps, Baker McKenzie
  • Procedural: Heiko Rothenbücher, Deloitte
  • Technical & data: Michael Müller, Microsoft
The following startups present their solutions:
  • Hintbox
  • LegalTegrity
  • Spill
  • Xylene
  • betterEco
  • lawpilots
  • Sustainabill

Following the presentations, attendees then went into breakout sessions to exchange ideas directly and intensively with the startups.

The event took place virtually and on-site at TechQuartier. The first part of the event (expert and start-up presentations) was streamed live. 

This is the first part of a series of events on the subject of LkSG.
