Identify and Address Illegal Practices
Bribery and corruption are global issues, affecting all areas of society. The United Nations encourages organizations to avoid and address all forms of corruption; the tenth principle of the UN’s Global Compact states that: “Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery”.
Proactive ABC programs, including anti-bribery and corruption training for employees, ensure that organizations limit their risk of exposure to criminal practices. Implementing robust anti-corruption measures also protects an organization’s financial and reputational interests, and can build confidence and trust among investors and other stakeholders.
