Fair Finance Guide International (FFGI) is an international civil society network initiated by Oxfam, that seeks to strengthen the commitment of banks and other financial institutions to social, environmental and human rights standards.
FFGI builds on a pioneering model developed in the Netherlands since 2009, which was followed by a similar initiative in Brazil in 2011, both of which demonstrated leverage and potential for bringing about change.
FFGI is currently active in (9) countries: Belgium, Brazil, France, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. In every country, a coalition of civil society groups, with expertise in areas relevant to monitoring and assessing the financial sector, operates under the umbrella of FFGI. FFGI coalitions often include development and human rights organisations, labour unions, environmental groups, and consumer organisations.
