    The $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) has proved to be a highly controversial project, with its impacts exceeding the wildest expectations of investors. It was accompanied by protests, court cases, accusations of political interference and even a presidential memorandum. The banks financing the project claim to have adhered to the Equator Principles[1] (EP or the Principles), a credit risk management framework for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risks in projects.
