Read the Final Statement published by the Peru NCP

On 18 December 2018, a specific instance was submitted to the NCP of Peru by Fundacion Luz Marina, an NGO, on behalf of three citizens identifying as members of an indigenous people’s group. The submitter alleged that a multinational enterprise in the hotel industry and three Peruvian companies, operating in the hotel, real estate, and construction sectors, did not observe the Guidelines as part of a hotel construction project, claiming that they were involved in the demolition of indigenous cultural heritage.

The NCP undertook an initial assessment, and in its final statement, it did not accept the specific instance due to a lack of substantiation and because the non-observance of the Guidelines was not attributable to the multinational enterprise.
