Annual Report 2022

For Transparency International, 2022 was a year of creating vital, lasting change around the world. We are a global movement with more than 100 independent national chapters and partners working together to tackle corruption. We tirelessly promote transparency, accountability and integrity at all levels, and across all sectors of society.

This year we:

  • closed in on kleptocrats by leading action against cross-border corruption
  • pushed back against corruption in climate action
  • used the world’s best known anti-corruption product to defend human rights
  • supported victims of corruption and helped everyday people create systemic change
  • established our goals for 2026
  • countered wrongdoing in COVID-19 responses
  • tackled autocratic foreign influence
