Integrity, Transparency and Good Corporate Citizenship

Civil Society
Date: Thursday, 08 March 2018 12:00 - 14:00

Venue: Rue Montoyer 47, 1000 Brussels, Belgium  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

The European Movement International, in co-operation with Volkswagen, are holding an event on ‘Integrity, Transparency and Good Corporate Citizenship’.

The event will feature keynote speeches by Emily O’Reilly, the European Ombudsman, and Hiltrud D. Werner, Member of the Board for Integrity and Legal Affairs at the Volkswagen Group.

Integrity, transparency and good citizenship are fundamental values for a successful society. This holds true also for corporates, which form an integral part of every society. As the current Volkswagen experience shows, breaking these simple principles is painful for the company involved and the society it serves.

The event will offer an opportunity for dialogue between stakeholders from industry, politics, civil society and beyond, to discuss responsibility and transparency within companies and to highlight the issue of corporate integrity in a wider societal context. It will debate the cultural change that the corporate world needs to implement and will tackle the need for a values-based system, underpinned by compliance to the rules, an open culture and an ethical mindset. The need for companies to commit to a constructive and transparent engagement with stakeholders from across society will also be discussed.

Join us for a frank and open discussion with a host of leading personalities.
