Transparency International UK will be presenting the findings of the 2015 Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index on 30 April 2015 at Norton Rose Fulbright.

Corruption in defence affects us all —taxpayers, soldiers, governments, and companies. The defence industry has a critical role to play in preventing corruption. Are the companies doing enough?

Transparency International UK’s Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index measures the transparency and quality of the ethics and anti-corruption programmes in the world’s major defence companies. The first edition launched in 2012, found that two-thirds of companies do not provide adequate evidence of how they prevent corruption. This year, 163 companies from 47 countries were assessed to establish whether the industry has improved.

Please join Mark Pyman, Director of the Transparency International UK Defence and Security Programme, for a presentation of the results of the 2015 Index and its implications for the defence sector. Jan Pie, Secretary General of the Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe, will present an industry view.

The event will be held at 6 pm on Thursday, 30 April at the offices of Norton Rose Fulbright, 3 More London, London, SE1 2AQ. Please register via ci2015.eventbrite.co.uk or by e-mailing ivo.jongejan@transparency.org.uk.

We hope to see you there!

About Transparency International UK’s Defence and Security Programme

Transparency International UK’s Defence and Security Programme works to reduce corruption in defence and security worldwide. Our vision is a world where governments, the armed forces, and arms transfers are transparent, accountable, and free from corruption.

We engage with governments, armed forces, security forces, defence companies, civil society, and others to advance this goal.

Defence corruption threatens everyone — taxpayers, soldiers, governments, and companies. With huge contracts and high secrecy in the defence sector, it poses a high risk of corruption.
