The Blue Company

Corruption continues to be an obstacle to our economy as it impedes innovation, affects the allocation of resources leading to widening income disparities, slows economic development and results in an overall increase in the cost of doing business. The latest report by Transparency International indicates that Kenya has dropped one point in the global Corruption Perceptions Index for 2018.

Kenya obtained a score of 27 out of 100, a decline from 28 points scored in 2017. The statistics therefore demonstrate that efforts to tackle corruption have not yielded results. There is therefore a need by all stakeholders to strengthen institutions that maintain checks and balances over political power; enforce anti-corruption legislation; and support civil society.

Partnership

Partnership With The United Nations Office On Drugs And Crime

The Blue Company project and The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Regional Office for Eastern Africa (UNODC ROEA) have entered an agreement on a partnership to engage the Kenyan private sector in the fight against corruption. UNODC ROEA and the Blue Company project will support companies to put in place anti-bribery and whistle-blowing policy guidelines.

The trainings will begin with a pilot phase, where five selected Blue Company members will receive support to develop and implement tailored anti-bribery and whistle-bowing policy guidelines which follow international best practices. The partnership aims to contribute to the realization of SDG 16 - to foster a culture of lawfulness, help build accountable and transparent institutions, and enable people everywhere to access opportunities and live healthy and productive lives.
