Berlin: Transparency International, the global anti-corruption group, will examine transparency levels of emerging market companies in a new study to be released on Monday, 11 July 2016.
Now in its second edition, Transparency in Corporate Reporting: Assessing Emerging Market Multinationals scores and ranks 100 of the biggest multinationals based in 15 emerging markets and operating in 185 countries around the world in three areas of public reporting: their anti-corruption measures, transparency in reporting on their organisational structure and the key financial data they provide for each country in which they operate.
Company scores range from 0 to 10, where 0 is the least transparent and 10 is the most transparent. Corporate transparency is critical for ensuring that companies are held accountable for their activities in a particular country, enabling the detection and prosecution of corrupt practices.
Supporting material will be available and individual interviews may be arranged in English, Portuguese and Spanish from Berlin, and in many other languages from our national chapters around the world.
