First company in the travel industry to partner with Transparency International UK
TUI Travel has become the first company in the travel industry to be accepted into the prestigious Business Integrity Forum of Transparency International as a corporate member.
Transparency International is the world's leading non-governmental anti-corruption organisation and has been pivotal in the worldwide fight against corruption. Transparency International played a vital role in the introduction of the UN Convention against Corruption, the OECD Anti- Bribery Convention, and the UK Bribery Act. The organisation's research, including its well-known Corruption Perceptions Index, is used by governments and companies worldwide.
By joining Transparency International UK's Business Integrity Forum, TUI Travel has become the latest member of a network of major international companies dedicated to ensuring their operations and business dealings are transparent and corruption-free. TUI Travel's own integrity and anti-corruption compliance programme involves regular assessment against a global benchmark of gold standard practice.
Karis McLarty, of TUI said: "To be the first in the travel industry is a fantastic achievement and underlines our commitment to transparency across the business. Leading responsibly within the business and our industry is one of our core values within TUI Travel and this partnership is a testament to that."
Peter van Veen, Director of the Business Integrity Programme, Transparency International UK, commented: "We value TUI Travel as a member of the Business Integrity Forum. They have made clear their commitment to ensuring their operations and business dealings are free of corruption in the UK and abroad."
