WHY ACCOUNTABILITY?

Strengthening corporate accountability for nature over the next decade is critical.

 

While there are increasing numbers of frameworks, targets, and guidance aiming to enable companies and financial institutions to halt and reverse nature loss, these are not enough; we need to enable business. A functioning accountability ecosystem drives action, is inclusive of all stakeholders and impacted communities, addresses inequality, and has consequences for inaction.

 

The Accountability Accelerator supports, scales, and coordinates the efforts of accountability stakeholders to strengthen this accountability ecosystem.

How we work

WHERE WE WORK

The Accountability Accelerator empowers organizations all over the world to contribute to a global corporate accountability ecosystem for nature. We do this by mapping and convening relevant stakeholders, by coordinating and orchestrating how they can better work together, and by making grants to ensure they have the resources they need.

Who we are

As a re-granter, the Accelerator is a field catalyst, playing the role of a mycorrhizal network—the connective tissue that enables a healthy accountability ecosystem. Like mycelium in a forest, we move resources to where they are most needed, funding stakeholders and filling ecosystem gaps. We make connections and enable alignment to create a better environment for stakeholder growth by addressing root problems and supporting the foundations of ecosystem stability.
