Point Out The Negative Impacts Of Companies By Votes

Organised by Friends of the Earth France, in partnership with the CRID and Peuples Solidaires-Action Aid France, the Pinocchio Awards highlights, and denounces, the negative impacts of multinational companies – either through dirty lobbying tactics at a policy level, or directly at a community level – and especially those who wash themselves in the language of green or sustainable development.

Every year, the three worst companies, across three categories, are chosen through an online public vote, and presented with the award at a public awards ceremony.

This year, as Paris hosts the international climate talks (COP21), the Pinocchio Climate Awards joins forces with the Worst Lobby Awards, from Friends of the Earth Europe and Corporate Europe Observatory to bring a special edition: the Pinocchio Climate Awards.

This year’s awards will target multinational companies whose activities have a direct impact on the climate and communities around the world, and whose influence, through lobbying, promoting false solutions or greenwashing weakens or destroys climate policies, or undermines action on climate change.
