Background



Alliance for Integrity brings together private sector companies, civil society organizations, and governments to share knowledge and best practices on integrity and anti-corruption measures. Through its various programs and activities, the Alliance for Integrity seeks to create a business environment that promotes transparency, ethical behaviour, and responsible corporate governance.
