ICC commissions are specialized working bodies composed of business experts who examine major issues of interest to the business world.
ICC has been a pioneer in the business fight against corruption, issuing in 1977 a first edition of the ICC Rules of Conduct to Combat Extortion and Bribery. Through the work of the ICC Commission on Corporate Responsibility and Anti-corruption, the world business organization today continues to lead on anti-corruption and corporate responsibility issues, providing industry guidance and codes and via advocacy to high-level policymakers.
Chaired by Denis Simonneau, Director of European and International Relations of Engie (formerly GDF Suez), the commission brings together more than 300 members from 40 countries, representing multinational companies, law firms, trade associations, and small- and medium-sized enterprises.
The commission meets twice yearly, but carries out work constantly throughout the year, including through issue-specific task forces.
