Organization The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility
History ICCR was founded in 1971 by a small group of faith-based organisations that wanted to end the apartheid system in South Africa. It happened that they were all investors in companies doing business in that country. They notified the companies of their plans to divest themselves of their shares unless the companies stopped their South African trade. Through this action a movement was born which helped end apartheid. Since then, ICCR membership has grown to 300 organisations representing over $100 billion in assets under management. ICCR members comprise faith organisations, SRI asset-management companies, unions, pension funds and college and university endowment funds, among others.
