The Global Commons Alliance (GCA) is a growing coalition of scientists, philanthropists, businesses and innovators, inspiring new ideas and action to safeguard what’s common and precious to us all: the global commons. Our mission is to mobilize citizens, companies, cities and countries to accelerate systems change, and become better guardians of the global commons.

The Accountability Accelerator works with over one hundred organizations with expertise in data and standards setting, benchmarking, campaigns and regulation to build a system of accountability that holds companies responsible for science-based targets and broader environmental performance.
The accelerating climate and environmental crises are deeply rooted in our current economic systems. The way out of these crises requires extraordinary, systems-wide tranformations both in our economy and in the management of all global commons, within a very short timeframe. These changes cannot be achieved by one group of actors or one sector alone.
