It is poised to create a more visible, dynamic and agenda-setting platform, working with committed business leaders, international organizations and governments to address corruption, transparency and emerging-market risks.

The community has recently been expanding its work under the PACI Vanguard CEO leadership and moving towards the implementation of a global anti-corruption agenda. This agenda is largely informed by the action plans of the G20 and B20 Anti-Corruption dialogues.

Select PACI Projects and Initiatives
Driven by identified needs and interests of PACI Member companies, PACI undertakes initiatives to address industry, regional, country or global issues in anti-corruption and compliance. Examples include:
Global Issues Partnership on Anti-Corruption - The Forum is launching a Global Issues Partnership to house the Action Plan created by the B20 Working Group on Anti-Corruption.  This effort links in the Vanguard community of CEOs, together with leaders from government and civil society around a very specific, action-oriented global agenda, and supporting the G20/B20 process.

Regional Initiatives – High-level business-government-civil society meetings are held across emerging and high-growth markets on the key drivers of corruption and emerging trends that support the fight against corruption. In 2014, strategic dialogues on anti-corruption were held in the Philippines and Nigeria; and a special session at the India Economic Summit linked to the PACI Vanguard agenda.

Infrastructure and Real Estate Collective Action An in-depth review of corruption and transparency challenges in the Infrastructure and Real Estate Sectors industries through a dialogue series and supporting risk analysis. The objective of the project is to achieve CEO-level commitment to a mutually developed framework for collective action on sector specific priorities

PACI Public Awareness Campaign – The UN’s MY World Global Survey 2014 addresses transparency and corruption as a top priority for people under the age of 34. PACI and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime have catalysed a new initiative to learn more and amplify this generation’s passion for the issue, though a global survey focused on the millennial generation’s experiences of corruption.  Results will be launched on December 9, which is International Anti-Corruption Day.


The aims of the initiative are to:

  • Support corporate citizenship and set the global agenda through the PACI Vanguard, a CEO-driven anti-corruption community of purpose
  • Form targeted industry/regional/country initiatives and collective action projects supported by the PACI community and the PACI Task Force
  • Launch a Transformation Mapping (TM) tool that offers a more meaningful analysis of shared risk and optimizes decision-making for key organizations engaged in fighting corruption
