Barclays rebuked for 'tasty profits'
Thursday 5 January 2012 - by Regulation Mutters
The bank was shortlisted on Thursday by the WDM for the 2012 Public Eye "shame award" which aims to single out corporations involved in social and environmental scandals.
Although Barclays is the only bank up for the award this year, other companies on the shame shortlist include Samsung and Japan's energy company Tepco. Royal Bank of Canada took the title in 2010, while Citigroup was voted into top place in 2006.
Winners will be announced on 27 January in Davos, Switzerland to coincide with the World Economic Forum.
