Making finance serve society

28 April 2011

As part of our ongoing sustainable finance work (see, for example, the European Commission consultation responses we have submitted), Friends of the Earth Europe has co-founded the first watchdog focusing on EU financial regulation.

'Finance Watch''s mission is to strengthen the voice of society in the reform of financial regulation by conducting citizen advocacy and presenting public interest arguments to lawmakers and the public. It will act as a counterweight to the private interest lobbying of the financial industry.
