CEO letter on UN Convention against Corruption

In May 2009, chief executives from leading companies called on governments to more effectively and robustly implement the United Nations Convention against Corruption.

In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the CEOs expressed their support for the world’s only universal anti-corruption instrument, stating that it “holds the promise of curbing corruption and creates a level playing field for all participants in the global economy”. They described the Convention as “an essential instrument in the fight against corruption”, but underlined the need for the establishment of an implementation review mechanism.
