Corruption raises the cost of business, undermines public trust and hampers growth. Combating corruption and promoting integrity requires a whole-of-society approach.
The ICC Anti-Corruption Coalition with the support of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, is a multi-stakeholder initiative which unites partners from the public and private sector in order to tackle the corruption and raise awareness on the need for integrity in the society, aiming to improve the business climate by establishing good governance, advocating for international best practices for integrity and strengthening of capacities and cooperation between public and private institutions.
The Anti-corruption and Integrity coalitions aims to strengthen our collective impact by providing a point of reference to learn, connect, and take action.
The overarching objectives of the organisation’s Anti-corruption and integrity work is to support trustworthy institutions and open, efficient and inclusive markets. These objectives are aligned with the ICCs commitment to promoting policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
We works toward these objectives by setting global standards and providing the tools for their implementation. In addition to providing data and analysis, the OECD convenes and works with the international ACI community to share practices and experiences.
is everyone's responsibility
Integrity is one of the key pillars of political, economic and social structures and thus essential to the economic and social well-being and prosperity of individuals and societies as a whole.
Acting with integrity means: doing what you have been appointed for and being able to account for what you do. An ethical organization is an organization that promotes ethical behavior practices to the people and organizations it works with. It is an organization that is trusted, both internally and externally.
Respect for human rights is a key vehicle through which all type of organizations can help achieve the broader vision of peaceful and inclusive societies embraced by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Fighting corruption within the private sector, public sector or elsewhere is a progressive and incremental process. It requires strong commitment from top management and leaders. And it requires high-quality and systematic organization to ensure that anti-corruption efforts become an integral part of the corporate culture, at all levels. Corruption threatens the integrity of markets, undermines fair competition, distorts resource allocation, destroys public trust and undermines the rule of law.
Week of Integrity starts December 7th, 2020
It is time for Public Integrity
Businesses, individuals and non-governmental actors need to uphold public integrity and to not tolerate corruption of any form.
More impact together
Government, business and social organizations together draw attention for the importance of integrity. The campaign wants to promote ethical behavior, in the workplace and in the boardroom.
