At the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank’s (AIIB) third AGM in India this June, the AIIB has an opportunity to lead the way in sending a strong signal to other investors that the era of fossil fuels is over and live up to its commitments to embrace the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Take Action

Please join this global campaign by writing to the President of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), President Jin Liqun and his colleagues, urging the AIIB to take concrete steps to address the climate crisis, by shifting investments from fossil fuels towards sustainable renewable energy and to support energy access for poor communities.

For more information and asking AIIB to stop funding fossil fuels, visit: http://www.bigshiftglobal.org/aiib

In a historic 7-1 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Jam v. IFC that international organizations like the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group do not enjoy absolute immunity.

The Court’s decision marks a defining moment for the IFC – the arm of the World Bank Group that lends to the private sector. For years, the IFC has operated as if it were “above the law,” at times pursuing reckless lending projects that inflicted serious human rights abuses on local communities, and then leaving the communities to fend for themselves.

This will be the first time the US Supreme Court has addressed the scope of international organisations’ immunity.
