Mission and objectives
The Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility (ECCR) is a church-based investor coalition and membership organisation working for economic justice, human rights and environmental sustainability.
ECCR undertakes research, advocacy and dialogue to encourage companies to meet the highest standards of corporate responsibility and transparency, as well as assisting faith communities, their members and other investors in upholding these same high standards through responsible and positive-impact investment.
ECCR’s strategic objectives
- To influence the policies and practices of multinational companies, particularly those that are UK- or Ireland-listed, where they negatively affect communities, human rights and the environment.
- To foster responsible investment on the part of the churches and others.
- To empower civil society organisations working with host communities affected by multinational companies.
- To strengthen ECCR’s membership base.
