Many financial institutions invest in a handful of foreign oil companies, such as PetroChina, which help to fund the government of Sudan’s deadly campaign of violence against millions of its citizens. With a billion-dollar stake, JPMorgan is one of PetroChina’s largest investors.
JPMorgan’s current policies are not addressing their investments tied to genocide. Despite having adopted a variety of policies addressing social concerns and being a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment, JPMorgan actually increased its holdings in PetroChina, in 2011.
