The report gives an in-depth yet accessible analysis of the social and environmental effects of unconventional fossil fuels, and includes information on where they are found, the companies trying to profit from them and the growing resistance movements against them. The report also contains a unique 'carbon budget' climate change assessment of unconventional fossil fuel production, and stand-alone factsheets on each of the types of unconventional fossil fuel.

Deliveroo: where’s the money?

Deliveroo is one of the UK’s most valuable tech firms yet its latest financial results show it is not even close to making a profit. Corporate Watch assesses what this means for the couriers fighting for better conditions and asks why investors are putting so much money into the company.

Towards the end of last month, Deliveroo told the world how much money it had made in 2016. The results were … mixed. Sure, a lot more people are using the company to order food. Accounts filed at Companies House show Deliveroo made £128m from delivering restaurant food to people in their homes. That’s six times as much as the year before, with the company now doing business in 140 cities in 12 countries.

Southern Rail: ‘depressing, exhausting and frustrating’

As another strike begins, problems on the Southern Rail route continue. How did things get so bad? Nick Dowson reports from the platforms.

Fred, a 57-year old insurance regulator living in Crawley Down, west Sussex, has been travelling the line now run by Southern Trains for 35 years.

“The first thing I do when I wake is check the live departures board online. That's not healthy,” he told me when I accompanied him for his commute in May. “This has led to physical and mental illness in people,” he says.

The day we travelled together he was frustrated as, yet again, with the train due to leave within two minutes, the departure platform had still not been announced.
