Members on Accountable Now:
“As we witness more governments relinquishing civic authority to private industry and rolling back regulatory oversight, it is more important than ever that we ensure accountability and transparency. We must strengthen our role in society by challenging the powers that be and give voice to the people. At Greenpeace International, we feel strongly that we all must be accountable for our actions; this is why Accountable Now is so important to us.”
“We believe that Accountable Now is one of our best choices to join due to its high standard of transparency, accountability and effectiveness. Being an Accountable Now Member allows us to collaborate with international NGOs, learn, advance and thus serve more people in need.“
“For CIVICUS it is important that CSOs base their accountability on truly global reflection and expertise. Accountable Now offers the ideal platform for this global exchange of expertise and collective development for strong global CSO accountability.”
“At Plan International, we’ve made a big commitment to strengthening our corporate accountability – it’s one of our top global priorities for the year ahead to help make us more efficient and improve our practices. Our membership of Accountable Now will help us achieve the level of accountability we need to become one of the most trusted organisations in the sector at a time when we have set ourselves a bold and ambitious new purpose.”
“When searching for a suitable framework to allow Sightsavers to prove its commitment to accountability, we found Accountable Now to have the best proven record of a robust reporting and vetting scheme. Particularly for an organisation involved in development and not primarily humanitarian work, Accountable Now offers a comprehensive and very credible tool to demonstrate a high level of accountability.”
“Membership to Accountable Now is significant for us for two main reasons : firstly, we regard this as an open declaration of ActionAid’s pro-active commitment to advancing accountability at all levels; and secondly, we believe that Accountable Now membership is an opportunity to learn from our peers and contribute to generating development sector-wide knowledge creation about practicing better multiple accountabilities.”
“Accountable Now provides the best framework for World Vision to fulfil our commitment to accountability. It is comprehensive, providing an umbrella for reporting to all of our stakeholders on many different aspects of our work. Our commitment to the pursuit of excellence in all that we do is reinforced through interaction with our peers and the discipline of annual reporting to internationally recognised standards and assessment by an Independent Review Panel.”
Accountable Now Members are required to report annually against the 12 Accountability Commitments. The Independent Review Panel assesses the reports and provides individual feedback. We publish all reports, together with the assessment online.
When reviewing Accountable Now Members’ reports, the Independent Review Panel selects answers that they feel constitute good practice and could provide valuable information for other Members and the sector.
