Letter reiterating Vinci’s failure to respect Global Compact commitments on human rights
Advocacy letter | 20 June 2011
Bankwatch and the Movement to Defend Khimki Forest wrote to the Global Compact on 28th March 2011 regarding Vinci’s non-compliance with its Global Compact Commitments in relation to the first section of the Moscow – St. Petersburg motorway project. Our letter subsequently formed the basis of an enquiry to Vinci by the Business and Human Rights and Human Resource Centre, to which Vinci responded on 26th April 2011. Having carefully reviewed Vinci’s response, we still believe that the company is not in compliance with its Global Compact commitments.
Vinci responded to our second letter on August 26, 2011. Download their letter here.
On September 27, 2011, Bankwatch responded yet again with a detailed examination of Vinci’s statement. Download our letter as pdf.
