Maritime Anti-Corruption Network

Working toward a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large

Overview

Introduction

Bribery and corruption regulation is ever-tightening. Additionally, stakeholders expect companies to play a significant role in addressing the root causes of corruption. Are you confident that your business risks are well-managed and that you are participating in real efforts to confront systemic issues throughout your global supply chain?

The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) is a global business network working towards its vision of a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large.

MACN Members promote good corporate practice in the maritime industry for tackling bribes, facilitation payments, and other forms of corruption by adopting the MACN Anti- Corruption Principles, communicating progress on implementation, sharing best practices, and creating awareness of industry challenges.
