Human Rights Practices
Human Rights and Security
Ecopetrol has carried out the Implementation Program for the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights as of 2009. Since then, this program has been focused on the signing and undertaking of the Performance Indicators Implementation Pilot for the Voluntary Principles in the Magdalena Medio region and La Cira Infantas Project, in association with International Alert, Fundesmag and OXY.
Under this program, during 2011 human rights training was given to 450 people belonging to the security and surveillance activity, including private security contractors and direct employees.
Dissemination and training on these issues is part of the assurance activities that Ecopetrol undertakes as part of its commitment to human rights.
