The Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility (ACCR) is a research and shareholder advocacy organisation, headquartered in Australia.
We use our expertise in shareholder strategy to enable institutional investors to escalate their engagements with major, heavy-emitting listed companies in their portfolios.
We have a small portfolio of shares that we hold for the purpose of corporate engagement, including through the filing of shareholder resolutions.
Our research team undertakes in-depth research into the climate transition plans of companies in our portfolio, contextualised with the latest climate science, to assist institutional capital to understand investment risks and opportunities during the energy transition.
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).
ACCR has a multidisciplinary team with expertise in strategy, equities analysis, climate science and corporate governance.
Funding & Donations
We rely on grants, partnerships and individual donations to fund our work. We have never received support from any listed companies.
We are governed by a board and have a separate research committee in place to provide advice on research themes.
