The Co-op is backing Dirty Oil, a new documentary that had its premiere in London on Monday night.

The film alleges pollution from oil sands production is contributing to high rates of cancer among local communities; a claim that is rejected by the industry.

The Co-op has put £100,000 towards marketing and distribution of the documentary in Britain. Its asset management arm is part of a campaign against oil sands investment by Royal Dutch Shell and BP.
