Christian Aid has been named top non-governmental performer in the second annual Global Accountability Report produced by the One World Trust. The charity not only finished ahead of other British NGOs, with a score of 81%, but exposed the lack of accountability amongst some of the biggest corporate names including Google, Coca Cola, PricewaterhouseCoopers International Limited and General Electric who scored between 17 and 65%.
Daleep Mukarji, director of Christian Aid said: 'As an organisation which actively campaigns both in the UK and overseas, seeking to hold governments and big businesses to account for their actions, it is vital that we too are accountable to those we affect — poor communities, supporters, institutional donors, the public, our staff and overseas partners. This is core to our values and strategy. However there is no room for complacency, this is an encouraging starting point but to make the policies truly effective we need to sustain the commitment of individuals throughout the organisation.'
