Issues, events and sectors that cut across our campaigns.

  • Agribusiness
  • Climate action
  • Coal
  • Communications
  • COP Climate Summit

    The COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow is a key moment for global leaders to listen to the climate movement and play their part in sparking the revolution required to save the planet for generations to come.

  • Covid-19 Crisis

    The Covid-19 crisis has had both immediate and long term impacts on economies and societies, from shrinking civic space and the erosion of protections for environmental activists, to calls for climate-wrecking industries to be bailed out rather than workers.

  • Digital Investigations

    Data-driven and digital approaches are an increasingly important strand of our research and campaigning. We use a range of techniques to scrape and analyse data from open source and leaked datasets, social media and other online sources.

  • Gas

    Tackling climate change means shifting off fossil fuels; there is no future for gas if the world is to avoid climate breakdown.

  • Oil
  • OPL 245 Deal

    Our investigation into a deal in which international oil companies Shell and Eni bought rights to one of Africa’s most promising oil blocks revealed that executives knew that the $1.1bn they paid was likely to fund a vast bribery scheme. Investigations into the deal have led to one of the biggest corporate bribery trials in history.​​

  • Press freedom

    Investigative journalism is vital to ensure the powerful and corrupt are held to account and the voices of people seeking justice are heard. Yet the free press is being eroded, as journalists are threatened, attacked and even killed.

  • Supply chains
