Serious breaches of the Duty of Vigilance law: The case of Total in Uganda
Total’s operations in Uganda involve risks of serious human rights and environmental violations, detailed in the present report.
In spite of these risks, Total’s 2018 vigilance plan mentions no specific vigilance measures for the Tilenga and EACOP projects.

The plan is clearly inadequate, as potential risks caused by the group’s operations are only described in a perfunctory manner. Only very general risks are mentioned, and the plan does not include a detailed report or rank risks based on the group’s actual operations (e.g. by sector, by geographical area, by activity, by company/ supplier/subcontractor, etc.)...
