A leading USCIB member company has received the coveted Corporate Leadership Award from the U.S. Chapter of Transparency International, the leading global anti-corruption non-government organization. Bechtel President/COO Jack Futcher accepted the award on behalf of Bechtel’s 55,000 employees worldwide at TI-USA’s annual Integrity Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C. on November 14.
Bechtel was cited for its commitment to ethical business conduct, high standards on transparency and corporate citizenship. The company’s path-breaking “Vision, Values, and Covenants” statement, which serves as the company’s guiding principles, speaks to ethics directly and unequivocally: “We are uncompromising in our integrity, honesty, and fairness.” Bechtel’s Code of Conduct applies to all who represent the company or act on its behalf, including employees, agents, consultants, contract labor and members of its Board of Directors.
Over the past several years, General Electric, Coca-Cola, and PepsiCo – all USCIB member companies – have also received TI-USA’s Corporate Leadership Award.
Shaun Donnelly, USCIB’s vice president for investment and financial services and a member of TI-USA’s policy advisory board, represented USCIB at the Integrity Dinner.
