Make Hess Natur a cooperative!Posted: February 14, 2011
In December 2010, it was reported that Carlyle was interested in buying Hess Natur. While Hess Natur is known for being one of the sustainability forerunners among German companies, the Carlyle Group was involved in companies dealing with weapons.
Now, there is an interesting initiative that suggests that Hess Natur should be turned into a co-op, which is a fabulous idea and works well in Switzerland. You find more information on the Attac website, where you can also give your signature to show that you support this idea (so far, only 437 persons have signed).
