Projects

The below projects are exclusively in German, please contact us should you have any queries.

Fair Finance Guide: 

The Fair Finance Guide Germany is part of the initiative Fair Finance Guide International, which is currently active in seven other countries worldwide. In Germany the Fair Finance Guide is a project involving Facing FinanceRank a BrandSüdwind and the Verbraucherzentrale Bremen.

As the Fair Finance Guide Germany is funded by the Swedish Development Agency Sida and the Stiftung Umwelt und Entwicklung Nordrhein-Westfalen , the assessments and bank ratings are completely independent.

 

Fair Funds:

The database Faire Fonds is the follow-up project to the “Faire Rente” initiative of Facing Finance e.V. and is sponsored by Bread for the World. We examine whether and which controversial companies are included in the portfolios of the largest German providers of investment funds, namely Allianz, Deka, DWS and Union Investment. We also included funds that claim to be sustainable. The analysis focuses on companies in the arms and fossil energy sectors.

 

Killer Roboter Stoppen: 

The use of autonomous weapons will radically change the nature of warfare.Against this backdrop, the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots is a necessary civil society response to this development. It  was launched in April 2013 in London and elsewhere. Founded at the initiative of Human Rights Watch and the International Committee for Robot Arms Control (ICRAC).

At the request of the int. Campaign, Facing Finance e.V. coordinates its activities in Germany.
