November 24, 2009
Was going through the Student's Union website when I noticed a link to Sponsorship Policies. Would have loved to have some energy companies sponsoring my societies and they have really deep pockets.
I was quite surprised when found out that the SU has a list of banned companies:
- Arms Companies, e.g. BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, AWE, etc.
- Oil Companies, e.g. Shell, BP, Chevron, Total, etc.
Wondering why Esso/ ExxonMobil is listed seperately and not under Oil companies?
What about Body Shop, which is owned by L'Oréal, which is in turn partly owned by Nestlé.
Why McDonalds and not Burger King, KFC or Pizza Hut (later two owned by Yum! Brands).
