Dear Friends
Swiss-registered Glencore is one of the world’s largest companies in
the extractive industry. Glencore’s many mines and mining projects have
violated human rights and labour and environmental legislation on
countless occasions. Therefore, over the past several years, three Swiss
NGOs – MultiWatch, Solifonds and the Working Group on Switzerland and
Colombia (ask!) – have worked with various like-minded NGOs. We have
approached Glencore several times demanding changes to its corporate
practices. However, there has been little evidence of change so far.
In May 2014, MultiWatch published “Milliarden mit Rohstoffen – Der
Schweizer Konzern Glencore Xstrata”, a survey of Glencore’s
controversial business practices and of the negative impacts of its
mining projects.

MultiWatch now present the English version of the book. “Billions from
the Exploitation of Raw Materials – the Swiss multinational corporation,
Glencore Xstrata” is now available as a free download (pdf). Thank you
for reading the book. Please distribute the link as widely as possible:

In solidarity

las materias primas – Consorcio suizo Glencore Xstrata”, was published
