Corruption is a huge challenge for business in Africa. Many businessmen face “invitations” for bribes in various forms – from petty “speed money” to grande corruption.
ICC Austria supports companies to do “clean” business in Africa – to avoid corruption and make successful and profitable deals – without paying bribes.
ICC Austria’s “Commercial Approach to Anti-Corruption” focuses on showing the presently corrupt, that higher income and profits can be gained – at reduced risk – by avoiding corruption – as the main cost of corruption is not the bribes paid, but the long-term consequences of wrong decisions (e.g. nonfunctioning projects)
To be successful you have to go “beyond compliance”. You have to convince the presently corrupt, that most will be better off without it. These mind-set changes rely on strengthening the egoism of the presently corrupt.
