More on our work on renewable energy & human rights

Note: We agree with serious concerns raised by many environmental groups who believe large-scale hydropower and some forms of bioenergy should not be considered sustainable energy sources because of their human and environmental impacts. Hydropower and bioenergy are included in our work on new energy sources to ensure they are held accountable, especially as many investors classify them as renewable energy in their portfolios.
