Worldwide investments in Cluster Munitions a shared responsibility (2017)23 May 2017
May 2017 update
Investment in companies producing cluster bombs went up last year. This is in spite of the fact that many investors have decided to stop investing in the manufacture of the internationally banned weapon. These are the main conclusions in "Worldwide Investments in Cluster Munitions; a shared responsibility". This is the 8th such annual report.
In the past 4 years, 166 financial institutions from 14 countries invested US$ 31 billion in 6 cluster bomb producers. On the other hand, this year the number of institutions with policies excluding investments in cluster bomb producers grew to 88.
