Climate change and vulnerability: Pushing people over the edge, a CAFOD briefing, September 2014
In 2011 and 2012 the UK Government submitted official briefings to the US Supreme Court in relation to two high profile legal cases alleging corporate involvement in grave human rights abuses in the Niger Delta and Papua New Guinea. These briefings questioned the right of the affected communities to use the US Courts to bring cases against Shell and Rio Tinto respectively.
CAFOD has welcomed a new law aimed at making large EU companies more transparent, but we are frustrated that certain exemptions mean some unscrupulous companies will still be able to avoid reporting publicly on the impact they have on human rights, corruption and the environment.
