Jul 09, 2017 General Comments Off on Greenpeace apologizes after map mistake prompts anger
The international environmental organization Greenpeace has issued an apology for representing Taiwan as part of China in a recent report. The incident prompted a number of complaints and requests for donations to be cancelled.
Greenpeace on Sunday said it would address these requests and is taking the matter seriously.
Taiwan was mistakenly shown as part of China in a report on China's coal power plants and water resources. The report was published on Greenpeace's website on Wednesday. Following complaints, the organization apologized on Friday. It said that although the map was incorrectly labeled, no information concerning Taiwan was included in the report.
Nonetheless, the organization was lambasted by angry internet users who accused Greenpeace of ignoring local environmental issues while collecting millions of dollars from Taiwanese donors each year.
Lee Chih-an, a spokeswoman for Greenpeace Taiwan, confirmed Sunday that the initial mistake had been corrected. She also said that the organization has listened carefully to every individual who has asked to cancel their donation pledge.
