the Public Eye Awards

GREENPEACE International January 2011


Don't miss your chance to vote in the Public Eye Awards - where the nominees are the companies who have committed the most evil corporate offenses of the year. The awards ceremony takes place each year at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. While business and political leaders meet in Davos the Public Eye Awards remind the corporate world that there are consequences for their misdeeds. Whether that is exploitative working conditions, environmental destruction or other acts of disregard for society.

Help shine an international spotlight on corporate crime - Vote now!

The Fisheries Agency of Japan (FAJ) admitted that their officials have received free whale meat at the expense of Japanese tax-payers and made a public apology. Read more.

BREAKING: Alone among scientists, Pat Michaels testified before the US Congress last year that there was no need to act against climate change. But it appears he didn't reveal a key fact: he gets major funding from the oil industry. Congressional inquiry being demanded for what's being called "Skepticgate."
