The British Labour Party is looking at forcing the the London Stock Exchange to delist companies that don’t do enough to fight global warming if it comes back to power. “We’ve got to signal now that we’re being serious about tackling climate change.

McDonnell said he would also like to see the criteria for listing a company on the stock exchange include its record on human rights and trade union rights.
