TUI becomes first travel firm to join anti-corruption body

TUI has become the first UK travel company to be accepted into the Business Integrity Forum of Transparency International UK as a corporate member.

Transparency International claims to be the world's leading non-governmental anti-corruption organisation and it played a key 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 Corruption Perceptions Index, is used by governments and companies worldwide.

TUI Travel said its own integrity and anti-corruption compliance programme involves regular assessment against a global benchmark of gold standard practice.

Karis McLarty, director of group compliance, (Legal & Regulatory) said: "To be accepted as a partner to the Business Integrity Forum is a great honor, and reflects the work that TUI Travel has done, and continues to do in this regard.

"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, added: "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."
