Allianz response

"Allianz SE, 22.03.2019"


The disaster at  the Mina do Feijao dam on 25 January 2019, was a catastrophe resulting in the horrible loss of life for both workers and the community. In response, Allianz is taking immediate action by calling for more strict and transparent global standards for tailings dams. We believe that the most effective way to leverage our position at the scale that is required is through collaboration with others in our industry. The most prominent collaborative initiative, for which we are a part of, is led by The Church of England funds to engage with the International Council on Mining and Metals on the formation of improved tailing standards. Some early information is available in The Church of England’s Media Centre and can be found through the following links:
