The Accountability Accelerator works with over one hundred organizations with expertise in data and standards setting, benchmarking, campaigns and regulation to build a system of accountability that holds companies responsible for science-based targets and broader environmental performance.
The accelerating climate and environmental crises are deeply rooted in our current economic systems. The way out of these crises requires extraordinary, systems-wide tranformations both in our economy and in the management of all global commons, within a very short timeframe. These changes cannot be achieved by one group of actors or one sector alone.
