Open Business: Transparency International
Tilly Prior, Business Integrity Programme Officer, and Rocio Paniagua, Head of Business Integrity, Transparency International
About the Seminar
The seminar will introduce transparency International’s ‘Open Business’ report.
Addressing corruption is crucial to improving several sustainability factors, and there needs to be more meaningful disclosures on the way companies address anti-corruption risks.
Transparency International UK’s Open Business report, launched in March 2020, contains evidence on the business case for transparency around the way companies manage their corruption risks, guidance for corporate transparency across five high corruption themes and responses to corporate transparency dilemmas.
