About us

The Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) is a research and shareholder advocacy organisation.

Our focus is on corporate Australia — how listed companies, industry associations, and investors are managing climate, labour, human rights and governance issues.

We publish research and analysis on the environmental, social and governance practices of corporate Australia.

We have a small portfolio of shares that we hold for the purpose of engaging with companies, including through the filing of shareholder resolutions.

We are philanthropically funded, not-for-profit, and independent. We are a member of both the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the Responsible Investment Association of Australasia (RIAA).
