Investors Concerned About Banks’ Human Rights Performance

A group of 47 investors representing US$861 billion in AUM has signed a statement in support of BankTrack’s 2022 Global Human Rights Benchmark. In the statement, coordinated by the Investor Alliance for Human Rights, the investors express concern regarding the human rights performance of banks as shown by the Benchmark’s findings, calling on banks to “raise the ambition and increase the pace” of implementation of the UN Guiding Principles, as the UN has called for in its Roadmap for the Next Decade.
