Report argues mining industry is profiting from COVID-19 while putting workers, communities & defenders at risk; including co responses

A report published by a coalition of civil society organisations (Earthworks, Institute for Policy Studies - Global Economy Program, London Mining Network, MiningWatch Canada, Terra Justa, War on Want, and Yes to Life No to Mining) analyses through a series of case studies key trends in the mining sector's response to the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The report finds that:

  • Mining companies are ignoring the real threats of the pandemic and continuing to operate
  • Governments around the world are taking extraordinary measures to shut down legitimate protests and promote the mining sector
  • Mining companies are using the pandemic as an opportunity to hide themselves as public-minded actors despite poor human rights and environmental track record
  • Mining companies and governments are using the crisis to secure regulatory change that favours the industry at the expense of people and planet

The report was followed with a statement signed by over 300 organisations condemning the mining industry's behaviour during the pandemic.

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited companies mentioned in the report to respond.
