Corporate Accountability International is an organization interested in challenging abuse that comes from corporation and special interest groups.[1] As posted on their website, they are "confronting corporations like Coca-Cola and Suez for their aggressive attempts to turn water from a basic human right into an unaffordable luxury contributing to a crisis that could leave two-thirds of the world's population without enough access to water."[2]

History

The Corporate Accountability International started in 1977. They started an international boycott of Nestle infant formula, protesting Nestle's practices of marketing formula in countries where formula is not a safe option for infants. According to the CAI, water sanitation is often lacking and infants get sick from drinking formula mixed with contaminated water. As a result of their boycott, the United Nations Code of Marketing was created. Since then, the CAI has challenged several industries, including nuclear weapon companies and tobacco companies.[3]

Leadership

Corporate Accountability International is led by their board of directors and staff.[4]
