Accountability Counsel actively advocates for private banks to follow human rights standards and provide avenues for accountability for harms caused by their financing.
Human Rights Policies for Private Sector Banks
In July 2010, Accountability Counsel authored a report proposing Human Rights Policies for Private Sector Banks in partnership with BankTrack. The report was submitted to U.N. Special Representative for Business and Human Rights, Professor John Ruggie.
Accountability Counsel collaborates with our colleagues at BankTrack to improve the policies and practices concerning the Equator Principles (EPs). Please follow the link to learn more about our current and past initiatives.
