9 DECEMBER, INTERNATIONAL DAY AGAINST CORRUPTION. THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION PASSES THROUGH THE SKILLS OF CERTIFIED ANTI-BRIBERY PROFESSIONALS.
December 9 is the International Day against Corruption, established by the United Nations with the aim of raising awareness among the population about a phenomenon of a political and economic nature.
The 2022 report on the rule of law in Italy warns of the dangers of corruption in our country which risk jeopardizing the correct implementation of the objectives of the PNRR.
Among experts and business executives, the Corruption Perceptions Index in Italy has a score of 56 out of 100, placing Italy 13th in the EU and 42nd globally. According to the special Eurobarometer 2022 survey, 89% of the interviewees and 91% of the companies believe corruption is widespread in Italy, 32% of the interviewees report that they personally suffer its effects on a daily basis, 41% consider it a threat in the world of business. Only 39% trust the effectiveness of criminal prosecutions as a tool to deter corruption and only 29% believe bribery of a high-ranking official is followed by adequate punishment.
Even before being a crime foreseen and punished by the penal system, corruption has always been one of the most difficult sociological phenomena to stem within our society.
In 2021, according to a report by Accredia, there were 3,614 certified sites with anti-corruption management systems.
The UNI ISO 37001 – Anti-Bribery Management Systems standard is an important safeguard in the prevention and fight against corruption and in fact represents the first truly effective way to implement capable actions.
Becoming an Auditor/Lead Auditor certified for the UNI ISO 37001 standard – Anti-Bribery Management Systems – is a decisive step in making your professionalism certified by an accredited third party available to companies and enabling organizations to demonstrate to the reference market and its stakeholders to have a conduct of busin ess transparent and compliant with the reference standards.
Reducing corruption phenomena can be an investment for growth that can contribute to the necessary change of pace of our economy.
The certification of skills is, therefore, increasingly a distinctive element not only of an “ethical” type, but also a “substantial” one.
