(Early) disclosure of new transactions

FMO discloses information on new transactions on its website. Since 2017, we also early disclose information on potential investments. This gives stakeholders the opportunity to provide input on investments.

FMO's Independent Complaints Mechanism

At FMO, we believe our investment process should be as inclusive and transparent as possible. Therefore we established an independent complaints mechanism. This mechanism allows any external party negatively affected by an FMO-financed operation, to launch a complaint related to human rights, environmental or social concerns.
