The Coalition for Integrity (“C4I”), a leading Washington-based NGO devoted to fighting bribery and corruption in the U.S. and internationally, awarded its coveted Corporate Leadership Award for 2020 to Procter & Gamble (“P&G”), a long-time USCIB member company. P&G was honored on December 8 for its good corporate citizenship, leadership in proposing transparency and integrity and its long-established Purposes, Values and Principles (“PVP”) program. P&G Chief Legal Officer Deborah Majoras accepted the award on behalf of P&G CEO David Taylor. The Coalition also cited P&G’s extraordinary efforts and philanthropy in 2020 to fight the COVID-19 virus.
P&G is the seventh USCIB member company to receive the C41 Corporate Leadership Award, joining previous winners Bechtel, The Coca-Cola Company, General Electric, Marriott International, PepsiCo and Raytheon Technologies.
USCIB President & CEO Peter Robinson congratulated P&G. “We’re delighted to see, again this year, one of our leading companies, P&G, recognized for its pathbreaking leadership on corporate responsibility, integrity, anti-corruption and corporate citizenship,” said Robinson. “Like other USCIB companies, P&G has earned an enviable reputation for its corporate leadership here at home in the U.S. and around the world. P&G sells products in 180 countries around the world and has a direct corporate presence in over 70 of those nations. Our member companies are making the world a much better place and are an example for other companies around the world.”
