TINZ Report: "As good as we are perceived?"

Media Release (8 February 2010):

Transparency International (NZ) study raises concerns about the performance of many of NZís major companies



As Good As We Are Perceived raises concerns about the performance of New Zealandís major companies and concludes that many of our leading firms may be falling behind international best practice.

The report finds that only 18% of NZX50 companies have policies regulating facilitation payments and 24% of companies fail to meet even a limited rating for codes of conduct and ethics. 20 NZX50 companies are operating in what are considered high risk bribery and corruption sectors. Of these, nearly half of those companies have no policy guidelines for dealing with corruption or bribery and less than half provide training for employees on the companyís code of conduct.

For additional comment, contact TI(NZ) Directors; Alex Tan, 09 355 8502 or Rodger Spiller (09) 366 1672.
