A message from Executive Director Phil Bloomer

Do you like and use our website? If so we would greatly appreciate your support. The feedback we receive from all over the world suggests it is an unparalleled resource on business and human rights.

Our site profiles over 6,000 companies operating in over 180 countries. To maintain our independence, we never accept donations from companies or corporate foundations: so individual donations can make a big difference. If each visitor during one month donated the price of a daily newspaper, this would enable us to continue our coverage of the whole continent of Africa for a full year.

Please consider making a donation or setting up a recurring donation today.

Thank you,
Phil Bloomer, Executive Director
