Guatemala: Enel responds to allegations of the construction of a hydroelectric dam on indigenous territory

Throughout 2012 and 2013, indigenous leaders and representatives of ENEL, an Italian-based energy company building a huge hydro-electric dam on ancestral indigenous lands, held negotiation sessions in order to reach an agreement.  The negotiations marked the first time in Guatemalan history that a multi-national company had been forced to negotiate directly with communities affected by a large development in their ancestral territory.  The indigenous communities claim that ENEL refused to accept a profit-sharing agreement. 

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre contacted ENEL for a respond to the allegations; the response can be found below.
