Comments from Accountability-Central's Users
"I follow Accountability-Central on a daily basis because it tips me off to news and information that I don't see elsewhere. Its radar scans broader and wider than other sources I consult, providing a deeper understanding of , developments and trends in corporate responsibility, sustainability, and governance. The website nicely complements the work that the Institute editorial team does on the EthVest database of shareowner resolutions for the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility and the great new Community Investment Network website. Hats off."
