Corruption exists in various forms in almost all companies, industries and countries. Increased business and transaction costs, distorted competition and reduced economic growth are just some of the consequences. Through compliance and adherence to the rules, companies can act against fraud, bribery, extortion and other forms of corruption.

As value chains become more complex and diverse, and we see a range of challenges being integrated including the connections between human rights, labour issues, environment and corruption, businesses need to understand the risks and drivers of corruption — and how to address them within their organizations.

Uniting against Corruption: A Playbook on Anti-Corruption Collective Action

Uniting against Corruption: A Playbook on Anti-Corruption Collective Action was developed as part of the UN Global Compact multi-year project Scaling up Anti-Corruption Collective Action within Global Compact Local Networks.


With the six-step approach and deep dives on key roles throughout the Collective Action process, the Playbook enables readers to make a clear diagnosis of their local corruption landscape, identify and engage stakeholders and apply the Collective Action methodology to address identified corruption challenges and mitigate potential business risks.
