ICCR's work to promote corporate responsibility at hundreds of companies on a multitude of environmental and social concerns leads us to partner with some of the world's most effective and influential government organizations, NGOs and civil society groups, whose deep subject matter expertise, connections to impacted communities and commitment to social justice are invaluable to our corporate engagements. These critical "outside" voices amplify and empower our "inside" investor voice and help to to ensure our collective impact in shareholder advocacy.
Read what a few of our partners are saying about our work together.
"ICCR played a game-changing role for ROC and restaurant workers this year. Restaurant worker members of ROC are leading a campaign against worker exploitation, with one of the world's largest restaurant companies. ICCR members filed supportive shareholder resolutions and one of them was adopted. This work has sent a powerful message to the company and to the industry that investors support sustainable wages and working conditions."

"The importance of the investor voice in shaping the emerging water stewardship paradigm, and the work of the CEO Water Mandate in particular, cannot be understated. Specifically, the contributions of ICCR Members to the Mandate’s workstreams on corporate water disclosure, water and human rights, and water-related collective action have been invaluable. The Mandate Secretariat very much appreciates and hopes ICCR members will continue to encourage companies to join the initiative, and to engage with many of the companies that endorse the Mandate so as to help them up their approach to water stewardship."

"ICCR is the perfect forum for Oxfam to learn more about a company’s values, its internal champions, and its future direction. ICCR members have tremendous experience in engaging hundreds of companies. We have benefited from that experience through ICCR meetings and in conversations with members. We will continue to strategize with ICCR members on how best to influence a company’s practices. Our Behind the Brands campaign has used the insider strategy more than any other corporate campaign we have conducted. Our collaboration with ICCR is an integral part of that campaign."
