Fighting Corruption and Environmental Abuse – Global Witness is an international organisation recognised for bold, tenacious campaigns to expose and break links between natural resources, conflict and corruption. Every day, Global Witness fights abuses in the political or economic system. Ahead of the Paradise Papers – a series of stories on offshore corruption and tax avoidance, the Global Witness Brussels office hired Sustainability Consult to bring visibility to its anti-money laundering policy asks and help amplify its message.
Before and immediately after news of the Paradise Papers broke, we mapped and reached out to Brussels-based journalists covering financial corruption to pitch the Global Witness angle. Our work shone a spotlight on the Global Witness EU policy recommendations, achieving coverage on broadcast channels and in influential news outlets. We also generated OpEd opportunities to further spread the message.
