Global investors sign letters calling for better digital rights

The Investor Alliance for Human Rights sent letters to 26 companies—including Facebook, Google, Alibaba and Microsoft—urging them to publicly disclose their human rights commitments, give users control over their data and account for harms from algorithms and targeted advertising. The group of 77 investors includes Canada’s Vancity, NEI Investments and BMO Global Asset Management, and manages nearly US$6 trillion in combined assets. (The Logic)
