Transparency International UK’s Defence and Security Programme will release its new report - ‘Raising the Bar’ detailing good anti-corruption practices in defence companies such as BAE, GE Aviation, Fujitsu, and many more on 10 June at 18:00 GMT.


4 June 2013 - ‘Raising the Bar’ expands on our Defence Companies Anti-Corruption Index (CI), using results from our study of 129 companies from 31 countries that have combined total revenue of over USD 500 billion.

The report identifies and discusses seven areas that distinguish the better companies with respect to their anti-corruption practices. This collection of examples from the defence industry can also help raise the bar in other sectors, and enable their partners and customers to hold them to account.

‘Raising the Bar’ supplements this seven-part analysis with 104 good practice examples from companies studied in the CI.

Material will be available online.

A press release and the reports will be available from 6 June on an embargo basis as well as advance embargo interviews with our director Mark Pyman.
