ACCA

African Coalition for Corporate Accountability
Working together to protect human rights
VISION STATEMENT
ACCA’s vision is a continent where communities’ right to development is fulfilled and their agency to fully participate in the exercise of this right is respected. We envision an Africa where human rights are promoted, protected, and respected by business and governments, and victims and affected communities of human rights violations have access to adequate and effective remedies.
MISSION STATEMENT
ACCA’s mission is facilitating an alliance that crosses borders and creates a strong and united African network of civil society organisations and communities. The coalition seeks the protection and promotion of human rights in relation to business activity. The ACCA provides a regional platform to share information and knowledge among its Members and communities and between ACCA and other coalitions and organisations.
