A governance framework for anti-corruption and responsible business

Take advantage of a globally accepted framework to help scandal-proof your organization. This document’s origins are in the anti-corruption context, but it also applies to organizations striving to meet the responsible business challenges of ESG.

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.
