Through the lens of faith, ICCR builds a more just and sustainable world by integrating social values into corporate and investor actions. ICCR began in 1971 when representatives from a number of Protestant denominations joined together to challenge the role of banks and companies in Apartheid South Africa. For over four decades, ICCR has merged social and environmental values with investment decisions, believing as long-term investors, one must achieve more than an acceptable financial return.
By focusing cross-sectorally on people, place, and policy, ICCR works with corporations and their partners, government regulators, investment and financial entities, community-based organizations, and social & governance allies to help corporations operate in ways that advance just and sustainable communities while optimizing market valuation.
ICCR seeks organizations such as national denominations, religious communities, pension funds, foundations, asset management companies, universities, and unions to join their growing coalition. Working together, they use the power of investments to open doors at corporations and raise concerns at the highest levels of corporate decision making.
