  • Environmental groups have called into question the Bank of England’s commitment to tackling the climate emergency while it retains one of Britain’s most senior oil company executives on its governing board.
  • Greenpeace joined with Friends of the Earth and campaign group Oil Change International to condemn the role played on the BoE’s board of directors by Dorothy Thompson, the executive chair of Britain’s largest independent oil company, Tullow Oil.
  • Tullow Oil is a £550m oil and gas company that explores and produces oil at sites in Kenya, Ghana and Uganda.
