According to an estimate by the World Bank Institute, corruption is a global epidemic that costs the economy more than 1 trillion USD annually.
Corruption takes many forms and can pervade every human endeavour where temptation and opportunity meet. Today, companies with global operations face a huge risk of bribery and corruption while doing business.
With the advent of strict domestic as well as foreign bribery laws such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (US FCPA), UK Bribery Act (UKBA), etc their increasing enforcement, the imposition of record fines and criminal penalties have been sending shock waves through the business community. Latest to join this force are multilateral development banks (MDBs) who have also escalated their campaign against fraud and corruption on projects financed by them.
As regulators and stakeholders become less tolerant of lapses, responsible companies need to understand that they must undertake continuous efforts in order to identify as well as mitigate the risks of bribery and corruption effectively.
