Corporate Accountability International
|Corporate Accountability International|
The Corporate Accountability International started in 1977. They started an international boycott of Nestle infant formula, protesting Nestle's practices of marketing formula in countries where formula is not a safe option for infants. According to the CAI, water sanitation is often lacking and infants get sick from drinking formula mixed with contaminated water. As a result of their boycott, the United Nations Code of Marketing was created. Since then, the CAI has challenged several industries, including nuclear weapon companies and tobacco companies.
Corporate Accountability International is led by their board of directors and staff.
Corporate Accountability International lists their issues on their website. The following is an abbreviated list:
- Challenge corporate control of water
- Challenge corporate control of food
- Challenge big tobacco
