The Anti-Corruption Handbook for Business was prepared in implementing measure 2.1.2 of the Inter-institutional Action Plan for the Implementation in 2015-2019 of the National Anti-corruption Programme of the Republic of Lithuania for 2015-2025.

 

The major initiator and originator of this Handbook is the Special Investigation Service of the Republic of Lithuania, with active contributions from the:

  • Lithuanian Association for Responsible Business;
  • DNB bankas, AB;
  • Ernst & Young Baltic, UAB;
  • Chief Official Ethics Commission;
  • Ministry of Justice;
  • Transparency International Lithuania;
  • TEO LT, AB;
  • National Anti-corruption Association;
  • Clear Wave;
  • Algoritmų sistemos, UAB.

 

The authors believe that this Handbook is a unique tool for business entities seeking to implement transparent and responsible activities, which will help business organisations apply effective anti-corruption measures in their activities that will help identify and manage the potential risks of corruption therein, raise business anti-corruption awareness, promote ethical behaviour, immunity to corruption, develop responsibility and accountability.

The Anti-Corruption Handbook for Business is of a recommendatory nature, therefore it is designed in such a manner that business entities of different levels of creativity and abilities are able to adapt it differently, and it fits   a specific business entity. We believe that the Handbook will help to achieve best results.

 

Tvirta antikorupcinė laikysena turi tapti kiekvienos Lietuvos įmonės kultūros dalis, taip kursime pokytį valstybėje. Tai, kad verslo atstovai nori su mumis bendradarbiauti, kad reikalingos mūsų rekomendacijos ir įsitraukimas, atskleidžia verslo sąmoningumo pokyčius. Mums ypač svarbu prie to profesionaliai prisidėti, teikti reikalingą pagalbą“, – Lietuvos Respublikos specialiųjų tyrimų tarnybos direktorius Saulius Urbanavičius.
