Equator Principles Disaster Projects

The key reason why we are demanding that the new Equator Principles (EP4) will be categorically more ambitious than the current version (EP3) is because of the continued financing by Equator banks of projects with a large negative impact on people and the environment.

Examples of such disaster projects are presented below. They are divided in two categories: projects where we know Equator Banks are lining up to finance, but have not yet signed the loan, and projects that already secured finance under the Equator Principles.

During the revision process of the Equator Principles, we will add more examples to show the urgency for the Equator Banks to come up with a new version of the Principles that has much stronger commitments on climate change and Indigenous Peoples' rights.

You can find more examples of 'Equator projects' on the BankTrack website.

Equator banks, act with courage, and step up your ambitions for EP4: stop financing climate change, respect indigenous people's rights, everywhere!
