CAC in a nutshell

Three key objectives of the CAC are building critical mass of clean and transparent business community, uplifting compliance standard of private companies, and co-creating change in public services to enhance efficiency and transparency. The CAC is the sole collective action initiated by the Thai private sector that aims to tackle corruption. With almost 1,000 signatory companies and almost 400 certified companies accumulated over the course of eight years, the CAC has become one of the region’s leading anti-corruption programs in the private sector. The tipping points that lead to a rapid growth in the number of CAC members include recruitment efforts via a sectoral approach and the industry-wide applications by companies in the financial sector, keen support from the authorities and relevant organizations, and the Change Agent role undertaken by CAC members to persuade their suppliers and trading their partners to also adopt anti-corruption practices.

Companies in the key financial sector including brokerage firms and asset management companies have all become CAC signatory companies.
