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.
