The INGO Accountability Charter is a commitment of international NGOs to a high standard of transparency, accountability and effectiveness.

The Charter provides the only global, fully comprehensive and cross-sectoral accountability framework for NGOs driven by NGOs.

Annual reports and a robust vetting mechanism have led to significant improvements in the quality of Charter Members’ work.

High Standards

"Our demand for more accountability from governments and the corporate sector is credible only if we are prepared to hold ourselves accountable to high standards. Greenpeace strongly supports the INGO Accountability Charter due to its high accountability standards, comprehensiveness and global nature."
