In March 2012 the Bulgarian government officially announced the cancellation of the Belene nuclear power project. BankTrack members had worked to stop the project as part of an international coalition since 2006, when Western potential investors and financiers were approached for the project. In 2010 BNP Paribas withdrew from the project after years of campaigning by Les Amis de la Terre and others. Other banks which came under pressure to stay out of the project included Deutsche Bank, UniCredit, Citi and HSBC.
