According to Transparency International, the growing importance of emerging markets means their impact is felt broadly around the world. Thus it is important companies from emerging markets do all they can to stop corruption from being a part of their business.
As markets become global, the ethical and transparency standards of companies must become higher and more universally applied. Transparency International is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 90 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, it raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and work with partners in government,business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.
