Glencore in Peru: The Antapaccay Case and an Analysis of Compliance with International Human Rights Due Diligence Standards

16 November 2023

This report looks at Glencore’s operations in Peru, focusing on the environmental and social impacts of Antapaccay’s mining activities in Espinar Province, in the southern Andean region of Cusco, which is an ancestral territory of the Quechua and K’ana Indigenous peoples.

It finds that Glencore is not fully complying with international environmental, social or Indigenous rights standards. On the contrary, Glencore consistently does the minimum required by national legislation, which in Peru has large gaps in these areas.

The report reveals serious omissions by the company and includes recent information about the environmental impacts of the mining
activities and the land negotiation processes in the company’s expansion plans. It also offers recommendations on how Glencore could bring its performance in line with its international commitments.
