And, unlike any other organization, RAN does this through the lens of corporate accountability. RAN takes on some of the biggest offenders on the planet – including household name brands, major corporations and leading banks – and they get results. RAN campaigns are not designed to influence only individual corporations, one-at-a-time. Rather, we aim to shift entire industrial sectors and transform the global marketplace.Dr. Jonathan Foley is the Executive Director of the California Academy of Sciences, where he is also the William R. and Gretchen B.
