Glencore Plc has the worst human rights record among miners of metals used in renewable energy, the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre said in a report. 

The alleged abuses attributed to all companies range from attacks on activists to violations of environmental laws to forced relocations. Complaints about Glencore’s mines accounted for 64 out of the 495 allegations tracked by the London-based group between 2010 and 2021.
