Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery


In policies, procedures, culture, and decision-making, the company and its representatives are trained, empowered, and expected to detect and prevent bribery and corruption. The company collects and records fit-for-purpose data to support its anti-corruption and anti-bribery efforts. The company empowers workers to report corruption, bribery, and other types of illegal or unethical activities and has transparent processes (including a hotline) for whistleblowers to disclose such unethical or illegal practices (anonymously, if desired). The company investigates such reports promptly and ensures whistleblowers are protected from retaliation, reprisals, or intimidation.

Business Principles for Countering Bribery

Corruption Perceptions Index 2022 cover

Corruption Perceptions Index 2022

The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) ranks countries and territories around the world by perceived levels of public sector corruption, and can help you understand where national governments have the least ability to protect the public and uphold the rule of law. The index shows that progress against corruption continues to stagnate around the world; high scores indicate strong institutions and well-functioning democracies, and low scores indicate impacts from conflict or from the restriction of personal and political freedoms. This tool can help inform your Risk, Legal, Supply Chain, and Business Development teams about security risk trends that may affect your operations or value chain.
