Forest Footprint Disclosure has criticized leading oil and gas companies including BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, Royal Dutch Shell, Total and Valero Energy for their lack of disclosure regarding their forest use.
The companies all failed to disclose information of their forest use in 2011 for the third year, and Petrobas – which was first invited to participate in 2010 – failed to disclose for the second, according to FFD’s Annual Review 2011.
However, Greenergy International Ltd, which led the oil and gas sector in the review, was also one of the most improved companies overall in terms of the depth of their disclosure, according to FFD.
The nonprofit also welcomed first time submissions from Johnson & Johnson, Tesco UK and The Walt Disney Company.
