A governance framework for anti-corruption and responsible business
This document presents a globally accepted framework for an effective ethics and anti-corruption compliance program to help scandal-proof an organization. It follows the prevent-detect-respond methodology that brings together the hallmarks of an effective compliance program and groups them according to their objective.
Those objectives include:
- having the right culture, policies, and systems to prevent misconduct from occurring
- structures and controls to detect deviations from accepted practices
- tools and methods to respond to such deviations
The framework has its origins in the anti-bribery and anti-corruption context but will also benefit organizations striving to meet the broader emerging responsible business challenges of ESG.
