Greenpeace Activist Breach Procter & Gamble

March 7, 2014

The  news of breaching blue chips companies in the name of environment occurred under the watchful eye of security.  Downtown Cincinnati always has protesters picketing some of the largest corporations in the nation. The protesters have the “Cincinnati Police Probe Greenpeace Security Breach” and question the how.

Threat level and security is a continued issue but not only the responsibility of the company but the overall ecosystem in which the entity thrives. Threat assessments are infrastructural, as well as entity based to establish protocols for safety.

“Cincinnati police on Thursday called for a “security summit” of the city’s businesses in the aftermath of a breach at Procter & Gamble Co. headquarters by Greenpeace activists. Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said it was “a wake-up call” when activists got into P&G’s downtown offices Tuesday and used zip lines to unfurl protest banners from the 12th floor to draw attention to the company’s use of a palm oil supplier Greenpeace says is tied to tropical forest destruction in Indonesia. A P&G spokeswoman said an activist posing as a businessman on the way to a meeting let the others in. She said security has been tightened since the activists’ “well-planned” protest,” reports Associated Press.

Blackwell said he wants to convene the meeting soon to make sure corporations and hotels have solid security plans.

“In the protest, nine activists were arrested on burglary and vandalism charges. They each posted $50,000 bonds Wednesday and were released from jail. The FBI has joined the investigation, and police say more arrests are possible. P&G spokeswoman Lisa Popyk reiterated in an interview Thursday that the company is committed to 100 percent sustainable sourcing of its palm oil by 2015, saying it is “on the same side of the issue” as Greenpeace.”

This is a social breach that cities cannot rely on company’s to carry the burden of security. A Sustainability  Lens produced by LAND sds supports the role of an ecosystem balancing and engaging in threat, security, safety and efficiency as the platform for sustainability and a thriving city.

As environment becomes more of the global discourse city’s are not impervious. The focus on facility, people and resources are critical paths for engendering collaboration and sociocultural development to produce sustainable cities.
