In our age of hyper-transparency, the dissemination of credible information and public trust in the ethical leadership of businesses and governments is more important than ever. This is especially true as we grapple with one the greatest global crises of our lifetime. As the Edelman Trust Barometer’s special report on COVID-19 highlights, there is a clear need for businesses to build trust through communications and policies that are consistent, inclusive and transparent.
There is no better time for us to invoke the spirit of the Tenth Principle of the United Nations Global Compact against corruption and Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. Enrol in this special UN Global Compact Academy session for a discussion on how business and governments can ensure greater accountability, integrity and transparency in their response and recovery efforts, and how these efforts build resilience and create a better world.
