"The Public Eye Awards mark a critical counterpoint to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Organized since 2000 by Berne Declaration and Friends of the Earth (in 2009 replaced by Greenpeace), Public Eye reminds the corporate world that social and environmental misdeeds have consequences - for the affected people and territory, but also for the reputation of the offender. "

"The most important criteria in evaluating a nomination are the following:

- The cogency and substance of the allegations and the credibility of the nominating organization/person
- Scope, relevance, and topicality of the alleged bad practices
- Media attractiveness in terms of surprise element, celebrity factor, potential for scandal, geographical proximity."
