TotalEnergies publishes response of EACOP Ltd to Greenfaith report
Paris, November 16, 2023 - Following the publication of the report by the NGO Greenfaith on the consideration of cultural heritage within the EACOP project in Uganda and Tanzania, and for which EACOP was unfortunately not requested in advance, we have asked our affiliate EACOP Ltd, which operates the EACOP project, to address the allegations raised in this report. In the interest of transparency and completeness, TotalEnergies decided to publish the response sent to Greenfaith by EACOP Ltd setting out in detail the careful process that has been devised and implemented to manage the sensitive issues of cultural heritage sites, including graves. We deplore the fact that GreenFaith did not contact EACOP Ltd to check its allegations before publishing its report that therefore contains a significant number of inexact statements.
