Activists shut down Shell's Davos petrol station
Greenpeace said that thousands of people from around the world voted in the annual awards.
Greenpeace also said that it is "asking the WEF to consider whether destructive corporations such as Shell should in future be invited to Davos.
"While the company's Arctic programme continues, Greenpeace believes Shell should be suspended from the WEF".
Shell's Arctic drilling programme is currently under review by the Obama administration after a series of mishaps reportedly highlighted the huge risks the company is taking with its Alaskan venture.
Greenpeace has launched an international campaign to secure a sanctuary in the uninhabited area around the North Pole and a ban on destructive industry elsewhere in the Arctic.
Over 2.3 million people have joined the campaign, including global celebrities such as Paul McCartney, Richard Branson and Penelope Cruz.
