Business INTEGRITY

Our Work

A growing number of businesses are responding to bribery and corruption risks. They recognise the adverse impact this has on their reputation, their employees, and the prosperity of communities where they operate.

A growing number of companies are seeking out ways to improve the way they treat their employees, their communities and their planet. 

We see businesses as important participants in fostering a fairer society and a healthier democracy, and important contributors to the protection of environment.

In line with our three year strategy, our work with Australian companies is focused on strengthening laws to prevent money laundering and bribery, and enhancing due diligence procedures so that businesses and governments don’t exercise undue influence, risk conflicts of interest, or engage with business partners and suppliers with a poor track record.

We are focussed on protecting whistleblowers in the public and private sectors so they can report misconduct and wrongdoing without fear of reprisal and damage to their personal and professional lives. 

Transparency International Australia sees businesses as important partners in the fight against corruption. We can only successfully tackle corruption if we work together – with business, government, civil society and everyday Australians alike.

Opaque ownership structures lead to conflicts of interest and questionable conduct. We need businesses to demonstrate integrity by championing proper due diligence and transparency.

Bribery

Bribery is one of the most direct forms of corruption. We need business to take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption.

Who benefits from the company behind the company?

The public has a right to know.

Without full transparency, we cannot follow the money, we cannot scrutinise companies with poor track-records, and we cannot know who ultimately benefits from important contracts. Without transparency we cannot hold people accountable, and we cannot stop corruption.
