Anti-bribery and corruption

ISO 37001

With the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and UK Bribery Act, good corporate governance has never been so important.

Why tackle bribery and corruption?

  • Anti-bribery governance directly supports the non-financial value-add of a strong ESG strategy (environmental, social, governance).

  • Independent third-party certification provides tangible, overt and public assurance to your organization, your stakeholders, and oversight organisations that you are positively working to safeguard your business and clients against bribery and corruption threats.

  • Tackling bribery and corruption risk in your company and across your supply chain enhances trust in your company and people. 

  • Effective bribery and corruption controls support the development of good governance in the local community.

  • Routine and enduring awareness and management of bribery and corruption risk supports your legal obligations under the FCPA and UK Bribery Act 2010.
