With 20 member groups that represent over 480 organisations from 17 countries, ECCJ is the only European coalition bringing together European campaigns and national platforms of NGOs, trade unions, consumer organisations and academics to promote corporate accountability.

The coalition is driven by a vision of a sustainable world in which corporations’ drive for profit is balanced by the interests of society at large, and where businesses respect human, social and environmental rights. We seek to tackle some of the root causes of corporate injustice by improving European laws governing activities of business and their impacts on people and planet.

ECCJ works as a catalyst, drawing on the expertise and experience of organisations across Europe to provide a united voice at the EU level promoting the need for legal change. ECCJ is currently focused on the EU Corporate Sustainable Due Diligence Directive and coordinates/plays a central role in the broader civil society movement following this legislative process.
