Myanmar: Total and the Sherpa Association reach agreement for the creation of a solidarity Fund for humanitarian actions
Total upholds its categorical denial of any involvement in forced labour and all accusations of this nature. Under the terms of this agreement, Total has decided to create a 5.2 million Euro solidarity fund. The major part of the money will be used to finance collective humanitarian measures locally, benefiting housing, health and education. It is further designed to compensate the plaintiffs and any other person who can demonstrate that they suffered a similar experience in the area near the Yadana pipeline during construction work.
