About this grant

Corner House is a research and policy organization that focuses public attention on the environmental, human rights, and social impacts of international investment flows, and advocates for policies that promote sustainable development. This grant will provide general purpose support, allowing the group to push for international investment policies and practices that are participatory, transparent, and accountable. Over the past grant period, the grantee undertook successful work, which resulted in strengthened international environmental and social guidelines for export credit agencies. With this renewal grant, the grantee will consolidate the work it has pursued over the past decade. It will also seek additional future funding sources for new initiatives focused on monitoring recent developments in private financing of energy and infrastructure projects.
