Bribery and corruption framework

The GoodCorporation Framework on Bribery and Corruption is a set of responsible business principles, which can be used as a tool to assess and improve the robustness of management practices in relation to the risks of bribery and corruption in an organisation.

The 73-point framework can be used to review head office policies or at site level to evaluate their application in operating units in order to help organisations assess whether adequate procedures to prevent bribery are in place.

Areas covered by the framework

  • Top-level commitment: senior management actively promote the organisation's zero-tolerance of bribery and corruption.
  • Communication and training: the organisation trains all relevant stakeholders and has strong communications to ensure that its anti-corruption message is promoted.
  • Risk assessment: there is a specific corruption risk assessment which is carried out regularly.
  • Due diligence: a proportionate and risk-based approach is in place to conduct due diligence which identifies and mitigates any bribery risks posed by those providing services or operating on behalf of the organisation.
  • Key business functions: the organisation can demonstrate that it has understood and mitigated the bribery risks associated with its core business functions (sales, procurement, finance, HR and government affairs).
  • Compliance and monitoring: robust systems to monitor and review the effectiveness of anti-bribery procedures are clearly established with a strong speak-up process.
