Transparency International conducted research into the public reporting practices of 100 emerging markets companies comprising a list of Global Challengers 2011. Based on the methodology of previous Transparency International studies, researchers collected and analysed publicly available data on three dimensions of transparency: Reporting on anti-corruption programmes (covering inter alia bribery, facilitation payments, whistleblower protection and political contributions), Organisational transparency (including information about corporate holdings), and Country-by-country reporting (including revenues, capital expenditure and tax payments).
