Day Two: Session 2

Session 2 Confronting Corruption for a Sustainable Future: Is the Private Sector Ready?"  

Coordinator: Susan Cote-Freeman, Transparency International
Date: Friday 17:00 to 19:00
Location: Nikos Skalkotas Hall

Senior executives lack confidence in their companies' anti-corruption measures. This was the conclusion of a January 2008 PricewaterhouseCoopers global survey of senior executives which found that although almost 80% of respondents said their company had some form of anti-corruption programme in place only 22% were "very confident" that it identified and mitigated the risk of corruption. The findings of this survey will be the starting point of a special 13th IACC session which will focus on what leading companies are doing to manage the risk of corruption. Topics of discussion will include how anti-corruption measures can help build the corporate brand and will examine the sustained efforts that are required to turn an anti-corruption policy into a programme that remains effective even in difficult environments.
