Danish Institute of Human Rights

Total SA engages human rights institute

The French company is the developer of PNG’s next LNG project – the Papua LNG in Gulf Province.

The company moved to engage the Danish Institute of Human Rights to undertake a human rights impact assessment in its project footprint.

This is a process for systematically identifying, predicting and responding to the potential human rights impacts of this project.

This involves directly engaging with those people whose rights may be at risk.

The institute undertook the assessment this year and produced a report which Total is currently going through.
