Project Summary                                             

The Transparency International Secretariat will promote business integrity at three levels (individual businesses, groups of businesses, and the business environment), all of which are underpinned by Collective Action. 


In order to achieve the objective of facilitating change at scale, the project will improve the capacity of Transparency International to work as a catalyst for Collective Action at national level in multiple countries and advocate improved standards, norms and practices within international fora and initiatives. 


This will involve:

  • Developing evidence bases for Collective Action at national level through "Transparency in Corporate Reporting Assessments" and "Business Integrity Country Assessments"
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of and providing support for the replication of Integrity Pacts for procurement at a new scale
  • Disseminating learning and expertise within the TI Movement on Collective Action for clean business
  • Increasing international advocacy to help strengthen the development, promotion and enforcement of global standards in existing and new areas relating to business integrity
