Since 1977, Corporate Accountability International (formerly Infact) has waged - and won - campaigns that challenge irresponsible and dangerous actions by corporate giants. From bringing about significant reforms in the life-threatening marketing of infant formula in economically poor countries to pushing G.E. out of nuclear weapons-making to being a major contributing factor in the adoption of the world's first corporate accountability treaty, the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, our work has influenced the way corporations are held accountable for the last 35 years. MISSION: STOP CORPORATE ABUSE We are committed to stopping life-threatening abuses by global corporations and increasing their accountability to public institutions and people around the world. As global corporations have grown richer and more powerful than many nations, they increasingly operate without limits on their power or influence. Around the world, global corporations drive government policies, unchecked by strong global policies to protect public health, human rights and the environment. VISION: A MORE JUST AND SUSTAINABLE WORLD We envision a world where: Democratic institutions and civil society thrive, unthreatened by corporate interference in policy-making. People can adequately meet their basic human needs for food, water, shelter and good health. The opportunity exists for all people to reach their full human potential.  Security is based on cooperation and community. We are a highly regarded force for change We work directly with global governing bodies to achieve our vision.  We have official relations with the World Health Organization, Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), and are an official observer to the Secretariat of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. We are also recognized as a leader in achieving our mission. Over our 35-year history, we have been awarded recognition for our achievements, including: Letelier-Moffitt Human Rights Award, from the Institute for Policy Studies, 1982 Oscar for Best Documentary: Short Subject, "Deadly Deception," from the Academy Awards, 1992  BENNY Award, from the Business Ethics Network, 2006 Bloomberg Awards for Global Tobacco Control, from Bloomberg Philanthropies, 2012 World No Tobacco Day Award, from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), 2012
