  5. Global Witness – Runaway Risk

The report “Runaway Risk” by Global Witness, published in February 2023, discusses the environmental and social impacts of the New Manila International Airport project in the Philippines. It highlights the involvement of Dutch companies in this project, emphasising the project’s detrimental effects on local communities and ecosystems. The report criticises the project for displacing families, destroying critical habitats, and contributing to climate change. It also critiques the consultation process and the transparency of the project’s approval, arguing that it fails to meet international corporate accountability standards. The report calls for stronger legislative measures in the EU to prevent such adverse impacts of corporate activities.
