The criteria for judging are by assessing the transnational (a corporation with 25% or more foreign ownership) that has the most negative impact in Aotearoa/New Zealand in calendar year 2010 in each or all of the following categories;  

  • Economic Dominance - Monopoly, profiteering, tax dodging, cultural imperialism
  • People - Unemployment, impact on tangata whenua, impact on women, impact on children, abuse of workers/conditions, health and safety of workers and the public.
  • Environment - Environmental damage, abuse of animals
  • Political interference - Interference in democratic processes, running an ideological crusade
There is also an Accomplice Award for an organisation (not an individual) which was the worst Accomplice during the year in aiding and abetting transnational corporations in New Zealand to behave as described in the criteria. The Accomplice’s award is in addition to the Worst Transnational Corporation award and will not necessarily be awarded every year. You may nominate for either or both awards.
