  1. I don’t suppose that a list is available of the Companies that commited to this? I would like to know where not to invest my money, in stock purchases and in product purchases.

  2. “Dupont’s Brandywine Building in Wilmington, Delaware, headquarters for the giant chemical company. Dupont was among the business leaders gathered at a Rio+20 conference who pledged sustainable policies and joined a call for world leaders to usher in “a green industrial revolution” to save the planet.
    US chemicals giant Dupont pledged $10 billion to research and development and announced plans to launch 4,000 new products by late 2020 to produce more food, enhance nutrition and curb food waste.”

    This is just cheesy marketing, like GE has done with Barrack Osama.

    Glad I sold all my DD last year.

    The key word in the phrase, ‘green industrial revolution’, is ‘industrial’. And Greenpeace is part of an industry, too.

    Is there a scent (sic) of money in the air?

    • One can only wonder if the leaders of these companies realize that once Greenpeace and it’s other “green industrial complex” allies get control that everything else “industrial” is going to be under constant and unrelenting attack as the “enemy”? And all the indulgences they think they’re buying with contributions to the anti-industrial green fringe will amount to nothing that will protect them from eco-terrorist groups like Greenpeace and it’s ilk.

  4. “Signatories include chiefs of global companies such as Pepsico, Coca Cola, Nestle, Saint-Gobain, Royal Dutch Shell, Akzo Nobel, Bayer, Heineken and Pernod Ricard.”

    Heineken. Stella is starting to taste a lot better to me.

  5. Dupont having a conscious moment after their Bupahl incident several years ago?

    • That wasn’t Dupont, dumbass.

      • My but you have a very elaborate vocabulary.

      • Gamecock, the proper way to say that would have been:

        “That wasn’t Dupont, you ignorant putz.”

        That way you’d have been more accurate, and displayed a higher level of literacy. Of course, we know whitey is a troll, so sometimes we just need to ignore the troll.
