Global movement, global impact

Global movement, global impact

When Transparency International started out more than 20 years ago, many thought nothing could be done about corruption.

Back then, few imagined international anti-corruption laws, corrupt dictators brought to justice, corporations held to account, or individual citizens making the difference.

Things look very different today. Our global movement – made up of thousands of dedicated and courageous people – has proved all of this possible.

In our new impact report, we’re showing some of the ways we’re creating change around the world. Here’s a snapshot – check out the full report for more.

Stopping the corrupt, the world over

As a global movement spanning more than 100 countries, we understand the power of working together against corruption. From day one, we’ve called on governments to do the same.

They’re listening. We’ve secured international conventions on corruption and foreign bribery, global action on dirty money and put corruption at the heart of the fight against poverty – as of this year, it’s included in the Sustainable Development Goals.  

Billions of dollars of public money saved (and counting!)

Every dollar lost to corruption is a dollar stolen from taxpayers that could have been invested in hospitals, schools and infrastructure.

By blowing the lid on dodgy deals and exposing corruption risks and blind-spots, our teams have already helped save billions of dollars of public money, allowing vital funds to go where they should – making citizens’ lives safer and healthier.

A lifeline for victims

The corrupt are often rich, powerful and well-connected – no-one should have to speak out against them alone. Offering expert support and legal guidance, we help the victims of corruption break their silence and stand with them to demand justice is served.  

Building a brighter future

When people have the skills and opportunity to fight corruption, even the most entrenched abuse can be stopped. When thousands of them come together, the potential for lasting change is huge. From youth summer schools to community trainings, we’re helping people transform the world around them.

While the G20 drags its feet, the corrupt continue to benefit from anonymous company ownership

The corrupt don’t like paper trails, they like secrecy. What better way to hide corrupt activity than with a secret company or trust as a front? You can anonymously open bank accounts, make transfers and launder dirty money. If the company is not registered in your name, it can't always be traced back to you.
