Report Card for Corporate Response to Corporate Pollution

Report Card for Corporate Response to Corporate Pollution

New Report on Corporate Environmental Response

AwN | The Institute for Public & Environmental Affairs has released its second annual report card for corporate trasperancy and response to their own manufacturing pollution. The company with the top score overall was Apple, and the top apparel brand was Adidas. While Walmart appears to have a reasonable score, maybe there is a better reason to #BoycottStarWarsVII because Disney's score is deplorable, ranking more like Budweiser and IBM than Apple and Addidas. You can view the entire list and report here.

#BoycottStarWarsForARealReason?

This sort of information is very powerful, and people should really use it when they consider making a purchase. The corporate world will listen, if only people would demand things with their purchasing power... you have the opportunity, but only if you take it.
