Technology giant, Alphabet Google, comes out on top in the ‘corporate bias’ ranking created by the 1792 Exchange organization in which it is “determined how likely a company is to cancel a contract or customer, or boycott, alienate, or deny services based on opinions or beliefs.”
Released through the “Spotlight Report” on the organization’s website, the ranking considers “more than a thousand policies, practices, and other relevant criteria” to pinpoint each company’s position.
According to the organization’s website, the “Spotlight Report” seeks to protect small businesses and philanthropic institutions from “woke” capitalism.
Those responsible for the report aim to preserve “freedom of religion, speech, and enterprise.
In addition, the report’s release is intended to “educate Congress and interested organizations about the dangers of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) policies and to help guide public companies in the United States back to neutrality on ideological issues so they can better serve their shareholders and customers with excellence and integrity.
According to the survey, 50% of the companies surveyed have a low bias risk, 30% have a medium risk, and 12% have a high risk.
After Google, the five companies with the highest risk of canceling customers are Mattel, EveryAction, Honeywell, Berkshire Bank, and Benevity.
Also on the high-risk list are brands operating in Brazil, such as GoDaddy, Adobe, Airbnb, Coca-Cola, Ford, General Motors, HP, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Nike, PayPal, YouTube, Starbucks, and Amazon.
Among those with a low bias risk are Acer, Volkswagen, AstraZeneca, Signal, Spotify, Telegram, and Puma.
“We want Americans and the world to use the corporate bias ratings.”
“Look up your bank, web hosting company, payment processor, insurance provider… and if you don’t like what you read, print out a copy and take it with you to your local branch and politely ask them to change the policy,” said 1792 Exchange President Paul Fitzpatrick in an interview with the AMAC Newsline website.
