2023 Forum on Responsible Mineral Supply Chains

Responsible disengagement from fossil fuels as part of a just transition: The case of Colombian coal

Apr 25, 2023 | 6:30 AM - 8:00 AM

Partner session - Room CC20


Organised by: PAX for Peace, Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO), OECD Watch, Asamblea Campesina del Cesar por la Restitución de Tierras y el Buen Vivir (ACCRTBV) The transition to a sustainable, low-carbon future requires companies to disengage from fossil fuels rapidly but also in a responsible manner. A key element of responsible disengagement is for the exiting companies to contribute to the remediation of adverse impacts to which the companies contributed while operating. The session will explore these issues through the lens of coal mined in Colombia, the adverse human rights impacts in the context of armed conflict and post-conflict, and the responsibilities of both mining and energy companies if and when they exit such contexts.
