The Government does not specifically undertake work with UK mining companies in Colombia to mitigate their environmental impact. We expect them to comply fully with local environmental standards.
More broadly, the United Kingdom remains steadfast in its support to the Colombian Government in its efforts to safeguard the country's environmental assets.
We are committed to helping Colombia protect its unique ecosystem, reduce emissions and adapt to climate change risks. During President Duque's visit in June this year, the United Kingdom and Colombia launched a new Partnership for Sustainable Growth, with the United Kingdom committing a further £8.5 million to climate-related projects in Colombia. Through the International Climate Fund, the United Kingdom has invested US$165 million since 2010 to support Colombia's efforts in the agendas of climate change and green growth.
