Many companies thrive on data to influence the changes they see within their global marketplaces. Data allows companies to forecast, within their industries, on how to manage and proceed with their company’s business agenda. What if data could help in solving issues that affect world markets? What if, the large amounts of data that is used to make critical business decisions, can be used to monitor the threats companies face in the world of corruption?
Pressure is mounting, as the themes of corruption and bribery are becoming major topics of discussion in global markets. With increased demands for goods and the constant bombardment of international competition entering in markets, corruption cases across the world have been increasing. Industries large and small are looking for ways to enter into government contracts for long-term deals, and as competition between industries rise, so does the growing possibilities of corruption and bribery.
Where do we start? Many companies are currently asking themselves this question when it comes to complying with the U.S. regulation on Conflict Minerals. For companies that manufacture thousands of products-such as retailers with name brands-the requirement to publicly disclose the origin of gold, tin, tantalum and tungsten (3TG) used in these products is especially challenging. The prospect of surveying and requesting data from every tier 1 supplier is daunting and inefficient.
