Colombian Peace Process

Drummond supports the efforts of the Colombian government to reach a peace agreement with the FARC, and we wholeheartedly hope that this reconciliation process is successful, strengthening democracy and contributing to a more sustainable future for Colombia and every citizen therein. We also support the government’s intention to provide development and prosperity in rural regions of Colombia affected by violence that promote adequate conditions for the compensation of victims of human rights violations.

Drummond will continue to improve the conditions for recovery and reconciliation during the post-conflict through its corporate social responsibility programs, which will continue to benefit the people of this region. This is a great opportunity to help close a chapter that has negatively affected all Colombians for many years.

Reconciliation Procedure

We unequivocally embrace the principles of a reconciliation procedure based on the reestablishment of human rights and the implementation of political, economic and cultural mechanisms that facilitate the coexistence of all sectors of Colombian society. This process should be based on structural changes that foster transformation in society and tolerance. As it is widely known, the Colombian government has publicly stated that the responsibility for the design and implementation of a reconciliation plan (once an agreement is reached with FARC and is ratified by the Colombian people) is the government’s. Proactively, Drummond is in regular contact with government officials in the Post-conflict Ministry, the President´s Human Rights Advisor´s Office, members of the Santos Administration´s negotiating team in Havana, and with trade associations, so we can be informed of any progress or initiatives that are being put together in the regions where we (the companies) operate, and be positioned to provide support to communities and contribute to sustainable development and peaceful coexistence. These efforts need to be properly coordinated amongst all stakeholders.

Publications

Our reports compile much more than charts illustrating the company’s performance; they portray the stories of people who, from various work areas, form a support for a company that is growing along with the communities in the area of influence where it operates, that humanizes a highly technical process such as mining, and that is committed to the pursuit of benefits for all.
