Danish bank Danske has published a list of companies which it will not finance because of environmental and human rights concerns. Its list of “Excluded companies” names those that do not meet the requirements of its Socially Responsible Investment policy. The bank’s decisions on whether to exclude companies fromĀ its “investment universe” are based on tests carried out by the specialised independent SRI adviser Ethix SRI Advisors. Danske Bank Group reports on the companies that are screened out of portfolios semiannually. Among the excluded companies are Vedanta and its Sterlite Industries subsidiary.
