Oxfam calls these companies the Big 10 and keeps a scorecard on their environmental impact on a website devoted to the nonprofit’s “Behind the Brands” campaign.

Beloved brand Oreo, scored only 33%. Oxfam claims performs poorest on climate change and struggles on water, transparency and land rights. 

The campaign aims to make the companies more environmentally and socially conscious.
