Cerrejón promotes Human Rights through its training program

Cerrejón is committed to embedding the respect of Human Rights in the every day life of workers and has implemented a differentiated approach to ensure that employees have the required capacities and sensibilities on these matters. The Human Rights training plan includes a mandatory online course and in-person sessions to ensure that HR principles are understand and applied depending on the roles and responsibilities of each company area.


In 2023, 90% people have taken the online course and over 500 people from production, contracts, foreign trade, internal monitoring, and environmental company areas have participated in the deep dive sessions.


The training carried out, in addition to dealing with the contents associated with Cerrejón's Human Rights due diligence process and all the actions underway, exposes real-life cases that could arise in the operation and gives guidelines on how to deal with them, providing them with an opportunity to internalize concepts and definitions presented.


Additionally, this year, over 850 security guards from the three private security companies that provide services to Cerrejón have been trained on Human Rights policy and requirements. In addition, over 300 members of the Public Force, including personnel from the Army, Police, Navy and Air Force, participated in sessions on Cerrejón's commitments on Human Rights and the Voluntary Principles standard.


As part of our commitment to prevent violations of Human Rights of workers and communities, we conduct these trainings to strengthen our Human Rights due diligence process and maintain the company's leadership and positioning in regard to impact management.
