¿Qué podemos derivar del IPC 2019 de Transparencia Internacional?

Con un mensaje poco positivo, Transparencia Internacional publicó ayer los resultados del Índice de Percepción de Corrupción (IPC) 2019, revelando que la mayoría de los países evaluados muestran muy poco avance en su combate a la corrupción o inclusive muestran deterioro respecto de años anteriores. Imagen: Transparencia Internacional El reporte señala algunos aspectos importantes, más allá del índice en sí, que conviene resaltar: … Continue reading ¿Qué podemos derivar del IPC 2019 de Transparencia Internacional?

When an achievement creates a hollow feeling

Last month, I received confirmation that I had passed the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Certification granted by the CNBV, which certifies that a Compliance Officer is qualified and knowledgeable in the prevention of money laundering, terrorism and related crimes in Mexico.  Historically, ineffective and deficient policies to combat these crimes, together with impunity, have increased the levels of crime and insecurity in the country.

Corporate leaders demand public governance action

Last week, we witnessed a relevant example of public involvement by the corporate community, in controversial social and governance issues, despite potential negative business and/or political repercussions for them. 145 corporate leaders sent a letter to the US Senate urging it "to stand with the American public and take action on gun safety" by expanding background checks on all gun sales and strengthening guns laws to allow courts to issue life-saving extreme … Continue reading Corporate leaders demand public governance action
