Cerrejón has undertaken its operations responsibly and with respect for the environment, persons working at the company, and the neighbouring communities. As we are aware that the sustainability of our operation depends on our social license and on compliance with community expectations, we have adopted standards in our community outreach that aim to assess operational impacts, promote and respect human rights, foster the development of La Guajira and the communities in our area of influence, and carry out our activities transparently.
Cerrejón has adopted the highest standards as concerns respect for the human rights of workers, contractors, and communities in our area of influence, and these standards guide the daily activities of all Company areas. Special attention is due the respect for the human rights of the Wayuu people, for their ways, customs, and traditional authorities. Cerrejón employees charged with community outreach are trained in these standards for their daily work. We also train members of contractor firms for private security and the Public Security Forces assigned to our area of operations. Cerrejón has voluntarily adopted the following social international standards:
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
International Finance Corporation Performance Standards 1, 5, and 7
United Nations framework to Protect, Respect, and Remedy as concerns human rights and companies
Voluntary Principles in Security and Human Rights
Global Reporting Initiative
Since 2006, Cerrejón has had a Human Rights Policy, through which the Company is committed and commits its contractors to respect and promote human rights for its employees, for contractors, and for the communities within its surroundings, and to promote ethical behaviour, which we consider raises our competitiveness.
In recent years, we have established alliances with diverse organizations that have allowed us to progress in the development and modernization of the mining sector, as well as the development of strategies focused on the sustainability of our business.
Cerrejón has implemented a Complaints Office to address possible negative impacts from the operation anywhere throughout our area of influence under the framework of Professor John Ruggie to "Protect, respect, and remedy".
