Defence Companies Index on Anti-Corruption and Corporate Transparency 2020: Key Findings
The Defence Companies Index on Anti-Corruption and Corporate Transparency (DCI) assesses the level of commitment to transparency and anti-corruption standards in 134 of the world’s largest defence companies across 38 countries.
Data from the DCI 2020 reveals that although most of the world’s largest defence companies have publicly available ethics and anti-corruption programmes in place, the majority are still not transparent about their procedures to deal with the highest corruption risk areas, such as their supply chains, agents and intermediaries, joint ventures and offsets. Even where policies and procedures do exist, the DCI finds that many companies do not publish any information to indicate that they take steps to assure themselves of their effectiveness and implementation.
This report presents the key findings from the DCI 2020, broken down by the most significant risks facing companies operating in the defence and security sector.Download Publication as PDF
