Tracking banks' secrets

A group of organisations has put together a new website that examines links between banks and blacklisted companies supporting dictators, causing irreversible environmental damage or producing indiscriminate weaponry, such as cluster munitions, The thirteen researched banks together invest 39.6 billion euros in 14 such companies and projects.

This is not a TJN project, but it promises to be most interesting. The website offers a world map illustrating European banks' harmful investments, bank profiles and information on the financial links between the companies and the banks. You can also send an e-card via the site to the bank CEO, or learn more about Ethical Banking as a sustainable option.

Take a look.
