The purpose of Platform’s research is to explore what needs to change for the better, and how to change it. Our research is practical and geared towards social and ecological justice. Based on our research we make concrete recommendations that tackle the root causes of problems.

Platform’s specialisms are broad. We provide research on risks related to oil infrastructure, debt and equity finance, oil contracts such as production sharing agreements and geology, as well as case studies on art, activism and academia.

Platform has revealed hidden stories of corporate and government collusion through investigations that involve mapping out networks of power.
