Public Eye Awards 2011 – Nominations

Public Eye Awards 2011 – Nominations.

We were directed to this by PLATFORM‘s newsletter highlighting the Indigenous Environmental Network‘s nomination of BP, but all these businesses are extracting value for executives and shareholders by exploiting limited non-renewable resources, greenwashing, and/or unbelievable labour conditions in countries with limited or no legal protections for workers.

The Public Eye Awards mark a critical counterpoint to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Organized since 2000 by Berne Declaration and Friends of the Earth (in 2009 replaced by Greenpeace), Public Eye reminds the corporate world that social and environmental misdeeds have consequences – for the affected people and territory, but also for the reputation of the offender.

Whether exploitative working conditions, environmental sins, intentional disinformation, or other disregards of corporate social responsibility: At the forefront of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in late January, the most evil offenses appear on the shortlist of the Public Eye Awards 2011. And those firms placed in the pillory will feel the heat: Our renowned naming&shaming awards shine an international spotlight on corporate scandals and thereby help focused NGO campaigns succeed. This year’s categories are the GLOBAL award (chosen by an internal panel of experts) and the PEOPLE’S award (chosen by YOU and thousands of other online activists).
