Our Mission

A sustainable world in which corporations respect human rights and the environment.
Who we are

The European Coalition for Corporate Justice (ECCJ) is the largest civil society network devoted to corporate accountability, gathering more than 480 NGOs, trade unions and academic institutions throughout Europe to develop a common vision and approach to the issue. ECCJ currently has 20 members including national coalitions, national chapters from Amnesty International and Oxfam, and international organisations like Friends of the Earth Europe and FIDH. We draw on their expertise and experience and provide a united voice.


We are guided by a vision of a sustainable world in which corporations’ drive for profit is balanced by the interest of society at large, and where companies respect human, social, and environmental rights.

The change we want to see is robust corporate liability that holds business accountable; improved access to justice and remedies for victims of corporate abuse; and greater corporate transparency based on meaningful supply chain reporting that complements financial information with impacts on people and the planet.


We are changing the rules to make business accountable.

Our work is motivated by the express need to transform the European Union – home to a large number of corporations – into a global leader in corporate accountability.

Although most of our activities take place within EU borders, their ultimate beneficiaries are communities and workers affected by corporate abuse both inside and outside the EU.

By working together at the European level, ECCJ’s members aim to develop a common vision of corporate justice and to build capacity among civil society organisations to influence policies and regulation on corporate accountability.

What we do

We work with decision-makers and advocate for European and national policies and laws, while also building a strong corporate accountability movement.

We draw on the expertise and experience of organisations across Europe and provide a united voice.

We have three priorities: (1) human rights and environmental due diligence; (2) access to justice and remedy for victims of corporate abuse; (3) and corporate transparency.
