Transparency-In-Corporate-Reporting
This report evaluates the disclosure practices of 100 major emerging market multinationals headquartered in 15 countries and active in 185 countries. The report is part of a series on corporate reporting published by Transparency International since 2008. Initially focused on the world’s top multinationals, the series was expanded to include a first report on emerging market multinationals in 2013. To enhance comparability, the company sample for this report is primarily based on the 2013 edition of the Transparency in Corporate Reporting: Assessing Emerging Market Multinationals report.
This report assesses the public disclosure practices of emerging market multinationals based on three dimensions: first, the reporting of key elements of their anti-corruption programmes; second, the disclosure of their company structures and holdings; and, third, the disclosure of key financial information on a country-by-country basis. This information was gathered from corporate websites and other publicly available sources by a team of Transparency International researchers.

TPB Note
Transparency International (TI) was founded in the late 1980s and has been successful in enabling a conversation about corruption ... but the level of corruption has remained incredibly high. Why is this? In my view (TPB) the main reason is that TI has never understood the vital importance of accounting as a precurser to transparency and accountability. Corporate behavior changed significantly when the auditing profession was institutionalized in the late 19th century, but in the modern economic world a huge proportion of the economy operates in the shadows. There are many beneficiaries of this quagmire of corruption including 'reputable' banks, corporate organizations and investors who choose to look the other way and not see what really is in plain sight.

Understanding the value of transparency and accountability
In the paper, entitled “Understanding the value of transparency and accountability”, CDP, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, the Global Reporting Initiative, the International Accounting Standards Board, the International Integrated Reporting Council, the International Organization for Standardization and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board set out seven principles of transparency and accountability that they commonly believe are fundamental to corporate reporting: materiality, completeness, accuracy, balance, clarity, comparability and reliability.
