Brazil: After Brumadinho, Vale should be de-listed from the UN Global Compact, say civil society groups

An international group of civil society organizations submitted on 12 February a request for the exclusion of the Brazilian mining company Vale from the United Nations Global Compact, the largest network for corporate social responsibility in the world.

In light of the collapse of another Vale's iron ore waste tailings dam, this time in Brumadinho (Minas Gerais State, Brazil), which has taken, up until now, the lives of 245 people, left many missing and homeless, the organizations claim that Vale has violated the Global Compact’s principles on human, labour and environmental rights, by not carrying out adequate risk assessment, not taking the necessary measures for prevention and mitigation and by failing to adopt measures of non-repetition after the 2015 collapse of the Mariana dam.
