New film and report by the STP
Huge infrastructure projects are planned in the Brazilian Tapajós. In a film and a report, the STP shows the perspectives of the indigenous peoples on the projects and calls Swiss companies to account.
BKW to assume more corporate responsibility in the future
First steps towards more corporate responsibility at BKW: Following pressure from the GfbV, BKW has committed to include the protection of the rights of indigenous communities in its internal guidelines and to improve its due diligence mechanisms. In addition, BKW is introducing opt-out clauses in the event of human rights violations and expanding its complaints mechanisms abroad. This is a clear signal to the entire energy industry towards more corporate responsibility!
Who we are
As an independent international human rights organization, the Society for Threatened Peoples (STP) stands by minorities and indigenous peoples.
We document human rights violations, we inform the public and raise their awareness of human rights issues. And we protect the interests of those affected in dealings with the authorities and decision-makers.
We support local efforts to strengthen the human rights of minorities and indigenous peoples, and work both nationally and internationally with organisations and individuals who pursue similar goals.
