Anti-Corruption Compliance & investigations

Corruption and other financial crimes can be prevented and detected by means of sound internal controls, thorough analyses, and dedicated checks.

Having sound internal controls implies an overarching, risk-based program, often referred to as a compliance or anti-corruption program. To be able to prevent corruption, companies must fully understand the risks of corruption within their business operations.

Preventing corruption is an important part of doing responsible business. Corruption undermines good governance and economic development, and distorts international competitive conditions.

For a company, the potential consequences of corruption include financial, legal and social costs such as legal sanctions, loss of revenue, reputational damage and loss of market share.

Corruption risks can be managed by different strategic approaches, including avoidance, control, mitigation, transfer and acceptance of risk.

To prevent corruption, risk identification and mitigation are key elements. How the company organizes its anti-corruption work is important, so is the culture and awareness amongst employees and their ability to identify red flags indicating potential corruption.
