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

Oil pollution

Human rights impacts of oil pollution



This portal impartially presents the human rights impacts of oil pollution, from all sides.  What are the victims, advocates, companies and commentators saying?  Are the abuses continuing?  Are past abuses being addressed?  Are steps being taken to prevent further spills?  Do victims have effective remedies?  What is the latest news about lawsuits and compensation claims?

The portal’s purpose is to keep an ongoing focus on these important issues, and to provide a platform to reflect the continuing public debate.

All three briefings will be kept updated over the coming months and years.  Any company, organization or commentator wishing to submit a clarification, response or further information is welcome to do so – see contact details on the pages linked to above.
