ECCP managed projects are a collaborative enterprise, frequently involving research or design, that is carefully planned to achieve a particular aim. We partner with various companies and/or organizations to cooperatively achieve set goals.
Project I4J focuses on the pilot development of integrity mechanisms and models of transparent and effective small business and investment registration and promotion procedures at selected local government units (LGUs), in cooperation with civil society and decision makers at these LGUs.
Specifically, the project aims to include LGUs as key players for clean administrative procedures into the Integrity Initiative set up by the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) and the Makati Business Club. It recognizes the role of LGUs as a sustainable network for self-obligation and monitoring of transparent and uncorrupt structures and procedures. It also aims to create models of transparent, effective small business and investment registration and promotion procedures and disseminate them.
Project I4J targets local government leaders/officials, civil society, small business leaders and potential investors as beneficiaries. Three cities, three municipalities, and three provinces across Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will be selected as pilot project locations.

INTEGRITY INITIATIVE is a private-sector led effort to help the Philippines escape from the vicious cycle of corruption that not only has exacerbated poverty but also prevented the operation of a level playing field for business.Spearheaded by the Makati Business Club and the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines in late 2009, the initiative calls for a collective action among ethical foreign and local business enterprises that are craving for fair market conditions. As envisioned, the initiative will benefit all market participants willing to undertake a business culture changing process that will revolutionize how companies do business in the Philippines. It is a process that will initiate a change from within and a change that will radiate outward on a collective basis, leading to a new ethical business norm.
Ultimately, the initiative aims to earn for the country more foreign investments, more employment opportunities, and less poverty, resulting from international recognition that the Philippines is serious in its fight against corruption. Through the Integrity Initiative, the Philippines will become a benchmark in the transformation process from being highly corrupt to doing business ethically.
