    Hi, I'm new here, so please forgive my ignorance.

    I was looking around the site just now, and saw that some companies were heavily penalized for having operations in countries like China, which seems perfectly reasonable, but then when I looked at the ratings for Bright, the parent company of Weetabix, I saw that they received zero political penalty for being a Shanghai-based company. Why is this?

    Hi Hardy,

    Thank you for your question. We don't penalise companies who have their UHC based in a company we deem to an oppressive regime.

    For more information regarding our oppressive regime list and rating please view the following page

    If you have any more questions please let me know.

    Kind regards,

    Heather
