India / Atul Ltd.-01/Gujarat
Atul Limited is a leading chemicals manufacturer in western India, which owns two manufacturing sites in Gujarat: the Atul and Ankleshwar sites. There are five manufacturing divisions at the Atul site, including agrochemicals, bulk chemicals, colors, pharmaceuticals, and polymers. In June 2006, Brackish Water Research Information (BWRIC), a civil society organization in Gujarat, lodged a complaint with the CAO with concerns that the company was not providing sufficient access to environmental and social documentation.
In an agreement facilitated by the CAO Ombudsman, the company agreed to provide both social and environmental documentation to BWRIC. Subsequently, the complainants confirmed that they were satisfied with the information provided by the company.
The CAO closed the complaint in June 2007.
