What are we asking Churches to do?
This campaign asks the churches to do these four things
- To fully disclose financial information and lists of their investments in companies and businesses, in a simple and coherent way.
- To identify any companies in their investment portfolio which are currently profiting from situations in which international law is violated, including illegal exploitation of natural resources, illegal construction of the separation barrier and its related infrastructure and illegal settlements.
- To put in place a comprehensive investment screening process, specifically relating to violations of international law to identify companies in their existing portfolio profiting from illegal activity and to prevent future investments in such companies.
- To ask churches to review their current policy of corporate engagement with companies in their investment portfolio found to be profiting from violations of international law. To make it time-bound, structured. This may potentially result in a change of investment strategy.
