BHP Billiton: Dirty Energy - Alternative Annual Report 2011

In November 2011 a group of NGOs including London Mining Network & Friends of the Earth released BHP Billiton: Dirty Energy ‘Alternative Annual Report 2011'.

The report raises concerns about how BHP Billiton’s operations impact access to water & labour rights, and allegedly contribute to displacement, pollution & climate change.  It refers to impacts in Australia, Colombia & Indonesia.  The report also raises concerns about the social & environmental impacts of other companies including: Adaro Energy, Aramark, Cerrejón & MPX Energy.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited BHP Billiton, Adaro Energy, Aramark, Cerrejón & MPX Energy to respond to the criticisms raised in the report.
