Case alert: Framtiden i våre hender vs Intex Resources

OECD Watch Mar 25, 2009

Framtiden i våre hender (Future in Our Hands) files complaint against Intex Resources for environmental violations relating to the construction of a nickel mine and factory in the Philippines.

The complaint alleges that Intex Resources will violate the OECD Guidelines if it carries on with its plans to establish a factory in the Mindoro-area in the Philippines. According to Framtiden I våre hender, the factory is a threat to the local environment because it is located close to rivers that provide water to neighbouring villages and agricultural fields. The Norwegian NCP forwarded the complaint to Intex Resources, who quickly responded to the concerns of Framtiden i våre hender by means of a public letter in which they defend their operations in the project.
