Past Corporate Involvement

Companies that withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territory or end their involvement in the occupation are perceived as companies that are not complicit in the occupation. Yet, construction, infrastructure and mining companies create facts on the ground for years to come, entrenching the Israeli occupation.

Removing Veolia Environnement, Transdev and Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) from the Who Profits Database

In August 2015, Veolia Environnement’s subsidiary, Transdev, has sold all of its holdings in the Jerusalem Light Rail (JLR) to a group of Israeli investors. The approval of the deal by the Israeli authorities marked the end of Veolia’s operations in the Israeli market in general, and its involvement in the controversial JLR project in particular. Who Profits Research Center can now confirm that all ownership transfers have been completed; therefore, Veolia Environnement, Transdev and CDC are removed from our database.

بلاد الحليب والمال : تورط سوق منتجات الألبان في الاحتلال الاسرائيلي

يُقدّم هذا التّقرير الموجز تحليلًا اقتصاديًّا وسياسيًّا مُعمَّقًا لسوق منتجات الألبان الإسرائيليّة، ويشدّ انتباه القارئ نحو تورّط شركات إسرائيليّة عينيّة في اقتصاد الاحتلال. عدا عن تورّط كلّ شركة مبيّنة في ما يلي على حدة، فإنّ جميع الشّركات تجني الأرباح بواسطة استغلال السّوق الفلسطينيّة الأسيرة واستخدامها كمصدر دخل أساسيّ. يتّخذ هذا التّقرير من سوق الألبان الإسرائيليّة مثالًا ليفسّر بالتّفصيل تأثير هذا الخنق الاقتصاديّ على السّوق الفلسطينيّة. ويُقدّم التّقرير أيضًا شركة "تنوفا"، وهي إحدى أكبر الشّركات في صناعة الألبان والأغذية الإسرائيليّة، كمثال فرديّ. من خلال أبحاث أجراها مركز "من يربح" في مكاتبه وفي الميدان، فقد حصل على أدلّة مُقنعة على أنّ "تنوفا" تستخدم في منتجات ألبانها موادّ خامًا من مزارع ألبان تقع في المستوطنات الإسرائيليّة في الضّفّة الغربيّة المُحتلّة (شاهدوا أشرطة الفيديو أدناه). تقوم "تنوفا" بهذه النّشاطات على الرّغم من الحظر الذي صدر مؤخّرًا عن الاتّحاد الأوروبّي - الذي أُعلن عنه في شباط 2014 (رابط خارجي)، والذي بدأ تنفيذه ابتداءً من كانون الثّاني 2015 - على منتجات حيوانيّة مصدرها من المستوطنات الإسرائيليّة.

The Land of Milk and Money

This flash report presents an in-depth economic and political analysis of the Israeli dairy market while drawing special attention to the complicity of specific Israeli corporations in the economy of occupation. In addition to the outlined involvement of each corporation below, all corporations mentioned in this report reap profits by exploiting the Palestinian captive market and using it as a major source of income. By taking the Israeli dairy market as an example, this report explains in detail the effects of this economic strangulation of the Palestinian market. Tnuva, one of the biggest corporations in the Israeli dairy and food industry, is presented in this report as an important case study. Through Who Profits' desk and field research, compelling proof was obtained that Tnuva uses raw material for its dairy products from Israeli settlement dairy farms in the occupied West Bank (See videos below). Tnuva's corporate activity is taking place despite the recent EU ban on animal products from Israeli settlements, which was declared in February 2014 and became enforceable as of January 2015. This report is also available in Arabic.
