Since 2010, the major Swiss banks Credit Suisse and UBS have financed the world’s most controversial mining firm: Vedanta Resources. Vedanta earned the number two spot on a 2009 list of “most environmentally and socially controversial multinational companies” by RepRisk, a service provider for reputation risk, specializing in the financial sector. Vedanta took third place in 2010, right behind Transocean and BP. The acceptance of Vedanta as a new client shows that Credit Suisse and UBS disregard human rights in their business dealings.
