About the event
In 2022, we will be launching the Anti-Corruption Collective Action (“AC-CA”) project to understand the perspectives, and approaches that companies take related to corruption issues. It is not only about individually avoiding and mitigating the risks and costs of corruption, but above all seizing the opportunities and associated benefits of a robust culture of integrity that is fostered and implemented collectively by a committed group of like-minded stakeholders.
This focused group discussion aims to gather insights on how companies can identify and address corruption challenges together and use collective action to scale impact.
Why should Companies act against corruption?
Private corruption affects the entire supply chain, and it increases in the cost of “doing business”. The various leakages and corrupt transactions that occur along the supply chain translate into higher costs of products and reduces the quality of products and services (UNODC, 2013b). Aside from the financial risks, there are also legal risks involved.
What is Collective Action?
Collective Action is a multi-stakeholder, collaborative approach to address complex corruption issues. It is not only about individually avoiding and mitigating the risks and costs of corruption, but above all seizing the opportunities and associated benefits of a robust culture of integrity that is fostered and implemented collectively by a committed group of like-minded stakeholders.
This event aims to:
• Assess the baseline: understanding companies knowledge level related to anti-
corruption and compliance programs
• educate the business community on the corruption landscape in Malaysia:
corruption-related laws, and regulations
• identify the risks and threats to business integrity
• develop a set of actions for Anti-Corruption Collective Action
• engage businesses to commit to the AC-CA initiative
Companies that take action to combat Corruption can improve their attractiveness and increase the trust in their Company, build a strong reputation and that can lead to more business opportunities.
Who should attend?
This event is open for SMEs and Corporates from legal and compliance that want to learn, develop, and implement actions to combat corruption and bribery.
