UN releases long-awaited blacklist of companies with ties to settlements

OHCHR says 112 business entities have ties to Israeli settlements in the West Bank, 94 based in Israel, and 18 in six other countries

From Haaretz, 12 Feb 2020

The UN human rights office released Wednesday the long-anticipated report, which names companies with ties to Jewish West Bank settlements.

OHCHR said it has reasonable grounds to believe that 112 business entities [For full list see below] have ties to Israeli settlements in the West Bank, 94 based in Israel, and 18 in six other countries. (3 of these companies are based in the UK – our addition to this text)

In 2019 the publication of a UN database of companies with business ties to Israeli settlements in the West Bank was delayed, drawing the ire of activists who campaigned for three years.

The issue has been highly sensitive as companies appearing in such a database could be targeted for boycotts or divestment aimed at stepping up pressure on Israel over its West Bank settlements, which most countries and the United Nations view as illegal. Goods produced there include fruit, vegetables and wine.
