2023 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum

Racing to Zero – Education and Digitalization as Enablers in Fighting Corruption

May 24, 2023 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM



Corruption is a global, cross-cutting issue that the public and private sector must face together to guarantee a sustainable future and progress on the long-term challenges we are facing. Education and digital technologies can be powerful and mutually reinforcing tools in this regard. The “Zero Corruption” Manifesto launched by the Business at OECD (BIAC) Anti-corruption Committee in November 2022 recognizes the key role of these two factors by including them amongst the ten golden rules it sets for the fight of business against corruption. Since its publication, the manifesto has served as guide for BIAC’s work on this issue. Besides emphasizing the importance of tackling corruption to reach the SDGs at the OECD and other relevant organizations, BIAC has published a detailed brochure on how companies use digital tools in their fight against corruption and is planning a similar project for education. In this context, this side event will bring together representatives of the OECD and the global business community to discuss innovative ways of tackling corruption, looking specifically at the role that education and digital technologies can play. The event will be moderated by Nicola Allocca, Director Risk Management, Compliance and Business Continuity at Autostrade per l’Italia, and Chair of the Business at OECD Anti-Corruption Committee.
