Anti-corruption compliance: The new competitive advantage

DATE
Tuesday, March 5, 2019
LOCATION
Room 715
The growing global demand for greater transparency and accountability, along with more aggressive enforcement action, is changing the business environment. M&A and JV partners increasingly are requiring robust anti-corruption compliance measures, many jurisdictions are enacting “failure to prevent” bribery laws, which could lead companies to be prosecuted for not having adequate anti-corruption programs, and lenders are requiring anti-corruption programs a condition of financing. Additionally, mining companies operating in various markets face added pressures from the EITI, ESTMA and the new Government of Canada commitment to CSR and ethical governance through initiatives like the Responsible Business Conduct Abroad. This session will outline the costs and consequences of corruption from a business and legal context and how the implementation of anti-corruption compliance measures, CSR and ethical governance practices are now becoming a very real competitive business advantage that adds value and protects the company.
Organizer: Pat Poitevin, Canadian Centre of Excellence for Anti-Corruption (CCEAC), University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada
