After the introduction of the 10th Principle against Corruption in 2004, the UN Global Compact convened a global multi-stakeholder group to undertake cross-sectoral and collaborative efforts to implement the 10th Principle and end corruption.
The Working Group is tasked with facilitating cooperation and aligning efforts between global actors and initiatives to increase impact while avoiding duplication. The Working Group has played an instrumental role in mobilizing companies around the review mechanism of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC).
Members include experts from companies, business associations, civil society, international organizations, academia and Global Compact Local Networks.
