IBL believes that integrity is a fundamental principle that should be implemented in doing business to create prosperity for all. Business Ethics or Integrity is one of the main reason for the establishment of IBL. Since its early days IBL has been doing many programs and activities to promote ethical business practices, as well as anti-corruption/bribery, and provide assistance needed by the private sector to build capacity in implementing them.
IBL has been working with several like-minded organizations such as KPK, CIPE, ASEAN CSR Network, GIZ, UK FCO, USAID Cegah, Kemitraan, Transparency International Indonesia, ICW, and corporation such as Siemens, Chevron, ExxonMobil, ITM, BHP Billiton and others as well as with business association such as KADIN, APINDO, Gakeslab, and others.
In 2014, IBL has launched Indonesia Integrity Initiative (www.indonesiaintegrityinitiative.org), a collective action among business stakeholders on promoting and implementing business integrity.
On implementing its initiatives, IBL always involves its partners – in national, regional or international context – to work together to achieve targeted goals. Here is list of our past and recent partners:
