Thousands of shipbreakers risk their lives to earn a living.

Money laundering enables poaching. And 30,000 elephants a year pay the price. 

Criminal syndicates kill an elephant every 25 minutes for its tusks. Then they abuse the financial system to legitimise the proceeds. It’s time for the financial sector to take a stand. See how we’re working with partners to fight the money laundering that fuels the illegal wildlife trade.

PROTECTING WILDLIFE Together, we can help save the lives of endangered animals.

What experts and advocates say

At Standard Chartered, we want to apply what we’ve learnt in tackling other forms of financial crime to take the fight to the wildlife traders’ doors. That’s why we’re training bank branch tellers to better spot potentially suspicious transactions relating to the illegal wildlife trade and making this crime an area of focus for our financial crime investigators. Beyond our business we’re working to strengthen the collective understanding of the crime’s financial footprint, and are playing a central role in The Royal Foundation’s United for Wildlife Financial Taskforce.
