Facing Finance rejoinder to company responses
We would very much like to thank the companies for their responses to our report, we appreciate their taking the time to respond and providing us with feedback on the information. We note their comments with interest and have enclosed a short response to each of the relevant companies. In response to some of the comments we have discussed internally how this will feed into the development of future Facing Finance reports and with this, have concluded that gathering company feedback at an earlier stage in the process will provide for constructive dialogue. We thank the companies for being willing to engage. The responses by companies are varied in their level of detail - some provide very limited detail regarding their concerns and thus it becomes difficult for us to respond accurately. Overall we have sought in our report to ensure that all sources are well referenced and to ensure that only reliable sources are used. Due to the nature of some of the violations it is a considerable challenge to gather information on these topics.Please find below our comments to the companies.
