Johan Frijns (Director)

An “international tracking, campaigning and CSO support organisation targeting private sector commercial banks (‘banks’) and the activities they finance. We are an integral part of the global community of CSOs focused on the financial sector as a whole (multilateral and national development banks, export credit agencies, private and institutional investors, etc.).
They monitor “dodgy deals” and human right violations in the financial sector, publicly campaign against them and publish the results.

In 2022 they extended their mission “to challenge commercial banks globally to act urgently and decisively on four interrelated global emergencies: the accelerating climate crisis, the ongoing destruction of nature, the risk of ever more pandemics and the widespread violation of human rights.”
