Golden Veroleum Liberia

Golden Veroleum Liberia responds to Global Witness report

'Golden Veroleum Liberia responds to Global Witness report', 23 Jul 2015: GVL strongly refutes the allegations contained in the Global Witness (GW) report…We are highly transparent in all our operations and have repeatedly invited local and international NGOs to work with us…The report…alleges that GVL accelerated its conversion activity during the Ebola outbreak in 2014. These allegations are simply wrong. 70% of all land preparation activity in 2014 was undertaken prior to the major outbreak of Ebola...The report also makes assertions of coercion and improper dealings by government officials and…GVL employees. These assertions are historical in nature and were previously investigated…show[ing]…that GVL has not been party to any coercion or improprieties…[O]ur sustainability and operational processes…in many areas exceed RSPO, Liberian and industry requirements and standards. Yet we…will continue to make improvements...We remain committed to responsible investment in Liberia and to working constructively and respectfully with our host communities and stakeholders for many years to come…
