    • Anti-corruption programme;
    • Company holdings (organisational transparency);
    • Country-by-country financial reporting;
  • Good governance with appropriate board oversight;
  • Executive leadership committed to pursuing anti-corruption business agenda: tone from the top;
  • Policies and procedures in place including appropriate anti-bribery checklist /ethics and compliance / procurement processes;
  • Internal communication mechanisms to employees about anti-corruption standards; includes training programmes for employees around compliance;
  • Fair employment practices;
  • Channel for reporting corruption / irregularities;
  • Swift measures against those found engaging in corrupt activities – enforcement.
