Controversial Weapons

Inrate’s Controversial Weapons Screening supports investors in either complying with legal obligations or in reducing the reputational risks associated with an investment in such companies. Inrate currently has identified over 150 companies directly or indirectly involved in controversial weapons.

Inrate uses the term “controversial weapons” to refer to either weapons of mass destruction, such as nuclear or chemical weapons, or conventional weapons, such as cluster munitions or anti-personnel mines. In most countries, the production and use of controversial weapons is prohibited by international conventions. Moreover, these are deemed controversial due to the excessive and indiscriminate human suffering they cause. In some countries, the financing of companies involved in the development, production, maintenance, sale, transportation or storage controversial weapons is also illegal.
