Friends of Transparency EU

Transparency International EU is pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative to work with the corporate sector in the fight against corruption and the promotion of good governance in the EU.

“Friends of Transparency EU” will be a permanent forum for companies and individuals who are committed to attaining the highest standards of integrity and transparency in business and share the vision of the TI movement.

The aim of the Forum is to increase awareness among the private sector of the potential of the EU to be an anti-corruption champion. It will serve as a platform for discussion and, where possible, collective action.

To this end, the Forum will:

  • facilitate networking opportunities between civil society organisations and the corporate sector;
  • exchange and share views on policy developments at EU level;
  • improve the visibility of the corporate sector in advocating for strong anti-corruption, transparency and good governance measures at EU level.

Significant progress in the fight against corruption can only happen with the commitment of a broad coalition working across the public, private and third sectors”, said Carl Dolan, Director of Transparency International EU. “We all agree that corruption is bad for business, bad for individuals and bad for the EU. That’s why we are creating a link between civil society and business to find better solutions for fighting corruption together.”

Friends of Transparency EU builds on the successful experience of many Transparency International Chapters around the world in helping to engage the private sector in the fight against corruption.

The Forum is an invitation-only membership platform. To support the Forum’s activities, members pay an annual contribution of between €5,000 and €7,500. The Forum’s membership principles are available here.

Current corporate members of Transparency International EU are:
