Corruption risk and associated reputational risk are at an all-time high for businesses globally as governments apply multiple and sometimes contradictory laws to companies doing business in different jurisdictions. As recent high-profile scandals show, corruption and bribery run especially deep in the oil and gas and extractive industries, where economic gains are potentially high and value chains are long and complex. To read it click here.

May 2014

Whether the impact is one you can measure, or something less quantifiable, loss of trust has a lasting effect. Reputation risk and opportunity are events that can hurt or enhance an entity, person, product or service, from the largest entities in the world – the biggest governments, for example – to the tiniest of entities: small businesses and, of course, people and products. At the crux of reputation risk and opportunity is stakeholder trust – its loss or its enhancement. [ Download Here ]

logo_confBoard_sqBuilding Sustainable Integrity into Organizational Strategy and Operations (View PDF)
Andrea Bonime-Blanc & Anne Nobles
The Conference Board: Executive Action Series
April 2011
Most companies claim that integrity is foundational to their mission. In practice, however, it is becoming increasingly difficult to protect a company’s reputation. To protect a company’s integrity, there must be a strong ethics, compliance, and integrity (ECI) program in place—one that is fully integrated into the organization’s mission, strategy, and operations. The task of integrating an ECI program into the business is initially a multiyear effort and, thereafter, a permanent corporate priority. This report shows how an ECI program can be integrated into the fabric of an organization and become a part of the company’s culture and includes a case study showing how a major corporation—Eli Lilly and Company—is tackling the integration of its ECI program into its business strategy and operations. The report also provides a set of guidelines to help organizations create a sustainable and fully integrated ECI program for the long term.

After two decades of lax enforcement and half-hearted commitment, global anti-corruption efforts appear poised to intensify. But achieving the goal shared by both policymakers and international businesspeople to eradicate at least the most blatant forms of public corruption will require a more concerted and integrated approach–not only within companies and governments but across industries and borders.

Andrew Weissmann, Andrea Bonime-Blanc et al co-editors, multiple authors
The Ethics & Compliance Officer Association Foundation
June 2008
The Ethics and Compliance Handbook began as the brainchild of two close sup¬porters of the ECOA several years ago. Andrew Weissmann, former Enron Task Force Director, then a partner in the white collar practice at Jenner & Block LLP, and a frequent speaker and contributor to ECOA events; and Andrea Bonime-Blanc, then Senior Vice President & Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer at Bertelsmann and a director on the ECOA board, put on their respective hats as former prosecutor and E&C officer and developed the idea behind this book. The result is a book written by practitioners from leading organizations for practitioners and the larger business, regulatory, academic and non-profit communities that illustrates in clear and practical terms the major elements of an effective ethics and compliance program, using the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines as the jumping-off point.

March 2008
With corporate scandals continuing unabated and hitting the headlines daily (the U.S. sub-prime mortgage crisis, Siemens’ bribery probe, Societe Generale’s rogue trader, to name a few), more and more organizations—whether corporate, non-profit, academic, or governmental—are adopting global codes of conduct for their employees, executives, agents, partners, and vendors. And these global codes are not necessarily being used as organizational wallpaper like they might have in the past.

In today’s world of daily and instantaneously communicated risks, crises and scandals related to ethics and compliance—or what we call “E&C” risks—it is no longer simply desirable for companies to have an E&C risk-management program: It is a business necessity. Indeed, it is increasingly crucial to have an E&C risk-management system that is integrated with a company’s enterprise risk-risk management system.
