European Investors Concerned About Chevron’s Amazon Disaster

Ecuadorian indigenous leaders meet Church of England's Investment Department

Read this great blog by Mitch Anderson of Amazon Watch, focusing on concerns by European investors about Chevron’s environmental crimes in the Ecuadorian rainforest.

"London, England – Ecuadorian indigenous leaders Humberto Piaguaje and Guillermo Grefa began a one week European tour today, where they will be educating major institutional investors in Chevron Corporation, including prestigious funds such as the Church of England Investment Fund and the Central Finance Board of the Methodist Church, about the oil giant’s grim environmental and human rights legacy in the Amazon. The fact that European investors are concerned about the American oil major’s growing multi-billion liability over its Amazon disaster comes as no surprise."
