Colombia: Cerrejon’s response to statements by United Nations Special Rapporteurs that recommend closure of Tajo Patilla affecting indigenous peoples’ health

“Cerrejon reafirms the willingness for open and constructive dialogue” September 28, 2020

Cerrejón has noted with concern the statements made by the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteurs calling for the suspension of Cerrejón’s operations in the area of the Provincial community. The company also received a letter from the Special Rapporteurs on September 9 and has every intention of responding within the 7 November deadline set by them for Cerrejón to provide additional facts for consideration…Cerrejón is committed to developing an operation that respects the environment and the rights of workers and the communities neighbouring the operation. There are ongoing efforts to improve due diligence processes aimed at identifying, preventing and mitigating the impacts created by the operation, and to compensate for them when necessary. This commitment is formalised in the company´s Human Rights Policy, first published in 2005 and reformulated in 2011 to align with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), as well as in the Social Management Policy.
