Defence Companies Index

On Anti-Corruption and Corporate Transparency

The Defence Companies Index on Anti-Corruption and Corporate Transparency (DCI) assesses the levels of public commitment to anti-corruption and transparency in the corporate policies and procedures of 134 of the world’s largest defence companies.

By analysing what companies are publicly committing to in terms of their openness, policies and procedures, the DCI seeks to inspire reform in the defence sector, thereby reducing corruption and its impact.

The DCI 2020 assesses 134 of the world’s leading defence companies across 38 countries. We have identified 10 key areas where better anti-corruption standards and improved disclosure can reduce the opportunity for corruption in the defence sector; ranging from corruption risk assessments, to support for employees, responsible customer engagement and management of agents.

We will continue to use the results of the DCI to advocate for improved corporate anti-corruption standards in established and emerging defence markets. Ultimately, we believe this will build public trust, reassure investors, build constructive relationships with customers and improve the reputation of companies and the sector.
