The Alliance for Integrity is a business-driven, multi-stakeholder initiative seeking to strengthen corruption prevention measures in the economic system and global supply chains. As a learning and implementation network, the initiative promotes collective action by all relevant actors from the private sector, the public sector and civil society. The Alliance for Integrity is currently active in 14 countries worldwide. Key activities include awareness raising, building compliance capacities among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and improving the framework conditions for doing business through public-private dialogues. Solutions successfully tested in one country are replicated in other regions and fed into the global political agenda.
The Alliance for Integrity is financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
In times of crisis, the pressure on business leaders is immense. When the economic existence is threatened, compliance measures may not be high on the agenda. But ignoring compliance standards and sacrificing integrity will only lead to a vicious circle, which will make the crisis even worse and put hard-fought gains in the fight against corruption at risk.
To overcome global uncertainties, we must be able to trust each other, stand together, and be transparent in our actions! We have to ensure that emergency funds reach those who need them the most. That’s why the Alliance for Integrity together with its partners from all around the world has initiated this campaign in order to raise awareness for the issue and to call upon the private and public sector, civil society and academia to contribute to a level playing field. Only through collective action can we build a sustainable economic future with equal opportunities for everyone.
