North of England Club has joined the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), a global business network that aims to tackle corruption and enable fair trade in shipping.
MACN’s activities include:
- raising awareness of the issue;
- implementing the MACN Anti-Corruption Principles and establishing best practices;
- collaborating with governments, non-governmental organizations and wider society to determine and address the root causes of corruption;
- and fostering a culture of integrity within the shipping community.
Mark Church, Head of Sustainability at North, said “that over 50,000 anonymous incidents have been reported to the MACN since its foundation in 2011 highlights the importance of its existence. By joining the Network, we can contribute towards the elimination of a significant but under-acknowledged threat – and in doing so, help ensure that our Members, and the maritime community at large, continue to trade with confidence.”
