The Center of Excellence for Governance, Ethics and Transparency was established by the Global Compact Network India in March 2015 with the objective of developing a premier knowledge repository that conducts innovative action research and training, that provides a platform for dialogue and communication, and facilitates systematic policy initiatives for strengthening transparency and ethics in business. CEGET, as an advanced form of collective action, will address the issue of corruption collectively as it has the potential of reaching out to public sector, industry peers, suppliers & vendors, civil society, management institutes, media & other stakeholders and initiate joint activities to fight corruption apart from taking individual initiatives by them. This will enable it to level the playing field and create a business conducive environment with reduced risk of corruption. Furthermore, it will encourage innovative methods of countering corruption by knowledge sharing and networking, thereby improving individual stakeholder practices on one hand and using ICT (Information, Communication and Technology) efficiently on the other.
The vision of CEGET is to develop pragmatic approaches to 10th UNGC Principle.
