CIPE is launching a new guide aimed at fostering business integrity and ethics in emerging markets. The Guidebook "Strengthening Ethical Conduct & Business Integrity: A Guide for Companies in Emerging Markets" highlights a decade of lessons learned and observations of the private sector supporting ethical business practices among companies in emerging markets.
The guide aims to help companies in emerging markets in three main ways:
1) Make company leaders confident that behaving ethically will not put their company at a disadvantage compared to competitors that continue unethical, “business as usual” practices.
2) Equip individuals who champion business integrity within their company with better guidance on how to implement a business integrity program.
3) Offer practical suggestions to interested business leaders who are still at an early or exploratory phase in their approach to business integrity. 

Check out the CIPE website to view the Guidebook.
