SEEN conducted the initial research which drew attention to the disproportionate ratio of fossil fuel investments by international financial institutions, including the World Bank. Translated into numerous languages, these studies resulted in: demands for reform from members of the US House and Senate; hearings held in Italian Senate, Dutch Parliament; Italian Prime Minister and former Vice President Al Gore calling for reforms. SEEN launched an international campaign in 1998 that, in 2001, resulted in World Bank President James Wolfensohn calling for an independent study of extractive industries (EIR). The EIR called for the World Bank to phase out of fossil fuels immediately, and rapidly phase in renewable energy.
