Corporate Watch is a small independent not-for-profit research and publishing group which undertakes research on the social and environmental impact of large corporations, particularly multinationals. We aim to expose the mechanisms by which corporations function and the detrimental effects they have on society and the environment as an inevitable result of their current legal structure.
Corporate Watch strives for a society that is ecologically sustainable, democratic, equitable and non-exploitative. Progress towards such a society may, in part, be achieved through dismantling the vast economic and political power of corporations and developing ecologically and socially just alternatives to the present economic system.
Towards these ends, Corporate Watch:
Conducts research and analysis, raises awareness and contributes to public debate and education.
Aims to empower community groups that are concerned with economic developments and corporate
interests that threaten their communities’ quality of life.
Supports the work of public interest and educational groups.
