ANTI-CORRUPTION ETHICS AND COMPLIANCE HANDBOOK FOR BUSINESS
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the World Bank have come together to produce this handbook as the G20 Governments were looking for the best and practical way to implement the 2010 G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan. The Plan calls for greater public-private partnership in fighting corruption and this led to the G20 governments and their private-sector counterparts meeting on a number of occasions to look at ways to build this partnership
One of the observation made in the discussion is the myriad of existing anti-corruption principles for business that can be confusing, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises with limited resources, which are looking for concrete ways to prevent corruption in their business dealings in an increasingly complex and globalised operating environment.
Representatives from the accounting and auditing profession, the Basel Institute on Governance, the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD (BIAC), the International Bar Association (IBA), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the World Economic Forum Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI), Transparency International (TI), and the UN Global Compact.
It is a handbook developed by companies, for companies, with assistance from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the World Bank.
