A new EcoVadis study, “The Fight Against Corruption: Insights Into Ethical Performance in Global Supply Chains,” considers issues around corruption, such as abuse of power, bribery, conflict of interest, fraud and money laundering, and how prepared companies are to address it. The report evaluates nearly 20,000 companies annually regarding their environmental, human rights and ethical performance. Although third-party due diligence procedures or anti-corruption risk assessments are seen by experts as fundamental actions of any solid anti-corruption programme, the study finds such procedures remain exceptional for most companies, regardless of the region. It finds the top-performing regions to include North America and Europe. Read more about the report and its other findings – with a link to it – here.
