With its reputation for secrecy and huge contracts, the defence industry can be fertile ground for corruption. And when defence corruption does occur, it hurts everyone: taxpayers, soldiers, governments and companies.

To see what defence companies are doing to prevent corruption in their work, Transparency International UK’s Defence and Security Programme analysed 129 of the biggest defence contractors for a new study published today. They looked for public evidence of the anti-corruption systems each company has in place, as well as examples of good practice that companies can adopt.
