Titan cement in Egypt - environmental & labour concerns

In October 2014, the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights published a report on alleged labour rights and environmental enfringements by Titan Cement in Egypt.  The study called into question the International Finance Corporation's funding for Titan's Egypt project, saying that it renders the IFC's social performance standards "meaningless".

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Titan Cement to respond - its response is below, as well as the EIPR report.

EIPR and three other Egyptian organizations filed a CAO complaint at the IFC over Titan's impacts in Alexandria in April 2015.

Note: Also see here for a previous article raising concerns about Titan in Egypt, and Titan's response (June 2014).
