In 2014, the UN Global Compact marked the 10th Anniversary of the 10th Principle against corruption:
“Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery”.
The event provided an opportunity to reflect on the 10 years since the launch of the 10th Principle and looked forward by sharing emerging and innovative anti-corruption measures.
More than 200 participants, primarily from business and investment, discussed topics including: anti-corruption efforts in emerging markets, the role of investors in incentivizing good governance, corruption in the banking sector and the importance of collective action. Additionally, keynote speaker, Ms. Thuli Madonsela, Public Protector of South Africa, reflected on public-private partnerships in the fight against corruption.
