The report ‘Justice for People and Planet’ shows how corporate power has been used to repeatedly abuse and violate human and environmental rights, written by Greenpeace with assistance from SOMO.

Twenty cases expose corporate wrongdoing relating to deforestation, water and air pollution, plastic pollution, waste dumping, chemical spills, nuclear disaster,  of indigenous rights violations, civic and legal repression of environmental and human rights defenders, tax avoidance, corruption, climate denial, and fraudulent manipulation of the public debate.
