Corporate Hall of Shame/Corporate Hall of Shame
The Supreme Court has declared that corporations are people. Well, if some of these corporations were people, they'd be in jail. Each year, we ask you to vote for the worst of worst and induct the "winner" into our Corporate Hall of Shame. Then, we partner with allies to mobilize grassroots pressure and turn up the heat on corporations that corrupt the political process and abuse human rights, the environment and our public health. Look out for the 2014 ballot this July.
Corporate Hall of Shame
Koch Industries Winner 2013
For lavishing tens of millions of dollars on federal campaigns, lobbying and front groups to bust unions, deny climate change, and block campaign finance reform. Take Action
Monsanto 2012 Winner
For mass producing toxic chemicals, aggressively running small farms out of business, and recklessly promoting genetically engineered seeds that exacerbate food scarcity globally - again. Last year, Monsanto lobbyists attached riders to the Farm Bill and other legislation to prevent its GMO products from being regulated. Now, the corporation wants full immunity from any federal laws that are placed on genetically modified crops while communities wait for results from environmental impact studies. Take Action.
Chevron 2010 Runner-up
For dumping more than 18.5 billion gallons of highly toxic chemicals into the Ecuadorean Amazon, causing widespread disease and illness – and for refusing to clean-up its mess or compensate the victims.Take Action
Kimberly-Clark (the world's largest tissue-product manufacturer) was nominated for fueling large-scale deforestation. Kimberly-Clark was removed from the 2009 ballot after Greenpeace announced a historic agreement ensuring greater protection of Canada's boreal forest and other ancient forests around the world.
