ArcelorMittal: Going nowhere slowly

1 May 2009

Comprising case studies from seven countries ranging from the Czech Republic to India and South Africa, the report reveals new problems emerging around ArcelorMittal's iron ore mining operations in Nimba County, Liberia, including unclear resettlement plans for local people, a lack of permanent employment from the mine, threats to the Mount Nimba Nature Reserve, and a questionable donation of 100 pick-up trucks. The report highlights that despite ArcelorMittal's rhetoric on social responsibility, it continues to destroy the environment, risk people's lives and displace local communities.
