Transparency and Anti-Corruption

Task Force is setting the main objectives: to involve more companies and business associations from the BRICS countries, including Russia; to raise awareness of the B20 and the work of the Task Force beyond its immediate participants; to institutionalise aspects of the B20/G20 relationship and the B20 Task Force itself in order to ensure continuity beyond 2013 and a smooth transition to the Presidency of Australia. The members of Task Force can't be satisfied with just producing documents and making recommendations – business, working closely with government, should have the more ambitious goal of achieving measurable impact on the ground, in G20 countries and beyond.

Task Force Work streams

1. Ensuring Transparency in Public Procurement
This includes the theme of "Solicitation" which was identified as a high priority by the G20. The topic of High-level reporting mechanism will move in to this Work stream. The OECD and the Basel Institute will jointly lead the work on the High Level Reporting Mechanism as a sub-project of the procurement work stream. Leader: Sandy Merber (GE). WS members:  Fabrizio Pagani (OECD), Danielle Cannata (SABIC), Futhi Mtoba (BUSA), Gretta Fenner (Basel Institute of Governance), Huguette Labelle (TI), Dimitri Vlassis (UNODC)

2. Promoting, extending and implementing Collective Action initiatives
This Work stream will focus on the implementation of the Los Cabos recommendation to create a "Collective Action Hub" which could be operational by the end of 2013. Leader:  Lee Tashjian (Fluor). WS members:  Sabine Zindera (Siemens), Gretta Fenner (Basel Institute of Governance), Massimo Montovani (ENI)

3. Creating business programmes to build capacity in the value chain
This Work stream will merge the work previously done in Work streams 4 and 5. In addition to focusing on capacity building of SMEs, it will also look at capacity building of big companies of supporting SME awareness of compliance within their supply chains. The Work stream will continue to develop awareness of corporate training programmes, but will add in the role of business education. Leader:  Viviane Schiavi (ICC). WS members:  Huguette Labelle (TI), Sandy Merber (GE), Fredrik Galtung (Mahindra and Mahindra), Ivan Tyagoun (KPMG)

4. Strengthening the legislative and regulatory framework
This Work stream will merge the work previously done in Work streams 3 and 6. It will include issues previously discussed such as engaging the private sector in UNCAC and OECD reviews of legislation, self-reporting, avoiding disincentives such as double jeopardy and can add other areas of business concern such as whistleblower protection. Leader: Massimo Mantovani (ENI SpA). WS members:  Dmitri Vlassis (UNODC), Huguette Labelle (TI), Vivianne Schiavi (ICC), Fabrizio Pagani (OECD)

5. Implementing and sharing best practices in Russia
This new Work stream will develop the main themes of the Task Force on the ground in Russia and feed in recommendations to the other Works streams in advance of  the B20 Summit. Leader: To be decided. WS members:  Boris Tkachenko (IBLF), Elena Abramova (Russia), Elena Panfilova (TI), Roger Munnings (AFK Sistema)

3rd Session of the Task Force on Transparency and Anti-corruption took place within the B20 Summit held in St. Petersburg

St. Petersburg.  On Thursday 20th June, the 3rd Session of the Task Force on Transparency and Anti-corruption took place within the B20 Summit held in St. Petersburg.

The Task Force Chairman, Andrei Bougrov, Vice President of Interros Company and Norilsk Nickel, opened the session. The Task Force, he said, comprised over 50 companies from the G20 countries, as well as business associations and multilateral agencies. The number of companies, their enthusiasm and energy in working together on drawing up the B20 recommendations reflected the acute concern that the business community feels about corruption.

Third Annual High-Level Anti-Corruption Conference for G20 Governments and Business

This Conference, organised jointly by the G20 Russian Presidency and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), with the support of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), brought together more than 300 high-level government and business representatives, as well as civil society, to examine best practices for combating corruption.

Corruption is a threat to markets, public trust, and the rule of law, and requires governments and business to work together. For this reason, both G20 governments and business have committed to joining forces against corruption, as called for by the G20 Leaders in Los Cabos. To this end, the Conference discussed the priorities laid out in the 2013-2014 G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan and Business 20 (B20) Recommendations to Governments. It also built on the outcomes of the two previous High-Level Anti-corruption Conferences in Paris 2011 and Puerto Vallarta 2012.

B20 Task Force on Improving Transparency and Anti-corruption presents its recommendations to the G20 Sherpas

Brook Horowitz, Director of Business Standards with International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) presented the B20 recommendations on Improving Transparency and Anti-corruption to a meeting of the G20 Sherpas on May 11-12, brought together to prepare for the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg later this year. The Sherpas are the senior representatives of the Heads of State of the G20 countries.
The B20 recommendations to the G20 focus on four areas where business can and should be part of the solution:
•Enhancing the dialogue between the B20 and the G20 and strengthening the role of the B20.
•Combating the solicitation of bribes.
•Training and capacity building for companies, SMEs, and public officials.
•Encouraging Collective Action and Anti-corruption globally and in each G20 country.
