New standard on anti-bribery
The new ISO anti-bribery tool is well timed, shares Howard Shaw, Mazars’ head of anti-corruption and whistleblowing in the UK. “While there is a plethora of guidance on how to manage bribery risk, of varying qualities, there has been no single benchmarking standard that is internationally recognised,” he says.
As part of our sponsorship of Board Agenda, Howard makes a case for ISO 37001. To read the full article and more information on the implications of the new standard, visit Board Agenda here.
A healthy corporate culture is much like a healthy political culture: it thrives in an environment where engagement and fairness are valued and people feel they have a genuine stake in the future. “There needs to be fair treatment of, and good engagement with, all key stakeholders,” says Anthony Carey, a Partner at Mazars, where he leads the board practice in the UK. “That’s still a big issue for boards to address.”
