Major insurers do little against serious human rights violations

Tuesday, June 29, 2021

A new report from the Fair Insurance Guide Netherlands shows that the nine largest insurers in the Netherlands together invest more than 4 billion euros in eleven multinationals directly involved in serious and long-term human rights violations.

The report indicates that even when they have been aware of pollution, land grabbing, violence and murder for years, most insurers take no or insufficient action against the companies involved. In doing so, they fail to comply with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UN Guiding Principles).
