Transparency International, the anti-corruption group, will examine transparency in corporate reporting of emerging market multinationals in a new study to be released on Thursday, 17 October 2013.
Transparency in Corporate Reporting: Assessing Emerging Market Multinationals, scores and ranks 100 of the fastest-growing companies based in 16 emerging markets on publicly available information in three areas: their anti-corruption measures, transparency in reporting on their organisational structure and the key financial data they provide for each country in which they operate. Company scores range from 0 to 10, where 0 is the least transparent and 10 is the most transparent.
Corporate transparency is critical for ensuring that companies are held accountable for their activities in a particular country, enabling the detection and prosecution of corrupt practices.
The full report will be available at www.transparency.org on Thursday, 17 October 2013 at 6am Berlin time (4am GMT).
Materials will be available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic and Mandarin.
Please contact us for an embargoed copy of the report or to set up an interview before the launch next Thursday.
