Conservation International is embroiled in a devastating scandal over the greenwashing services it offered to undercover British journalists posing as Lockheed Martin employees looking for help sanitizing the public image of the leading arms dealer’s deadly weapons systems.
The journalists from London-based outlet Don’t Panic approached Conservation International (CI) with a truly outrageous request for its greenwashing services.

We’ve written extensively at DeSmogBlog over the years about greenwashing, but rarely has such a blatant greenwash operation been exposed like this one.
