Our Commitment to Human Rights
In 2009, Ecopetrol made the decision to take a comprehensive approach to this issue through the adoption of a Human Rights Guide and joining the United Nations Global Compact.
Our commitment to Human Rights
- Ecopetrol assumes the duty of employers to respect Human Rights and accordingly undertakes to:
- Carry out all its business operations within the framework of respect for Human Rights and in accordance with the principles enshrined in the Constitution of Colombia and international laws and treaties such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the American Convention on Human Rights, the declarations of the ILO, the United Nations Global Compact, and the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights.
- Reject and publicly condemn any abuse or violation of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (IHL). To this extent, Ecopetrol calls for full and impartial investigations of reported abuses and strongly supports the actions that are deployed, so that those responsible are brought to justice and the culture of impunity disappears.
- Work with a precautionary approach to environmental challenges, for which it declares itself in favor of sustainable development within its work, through the development and dissemination of environmentally friendly technologies.
