CEO Welcome Letter
Welcome to ethiXbase and thank you for visiting our website.
The fight against corruption is one of the greatest struggles of our time. The costs associated with corruption are immeasurable, leading to injustice, economic decay and social unrest. In response, the market, shareholders and authorities are demanding previously unparalleled levels of transparency from governments and businesses, as the focus on ‘getting things right’ continue to intensify.
At ethiXbase we view corruption as a growing global threat. This is why from our inception in 2011 we have made it our mission to help firms, no matter how large or small, reduce the risks of corruption and bribery impacting their organisation. Our utopia: a business environment where companies are committed to doing business with integrity, and are able to avoid corruption of any form while complying with anti-corruption laws of every country in which they operate. As key participants, influencers and leaders in the areas we operate in, how can your organisation play a part in shaping a transparent and fair business world while protecting yourselves from allegations of bribery and corruption?
Take a Look
I urge you to start by taking a look – at the market around you, understand your organisation’s own third party network and your processes, to help create the type of transparent, open and honest business environment you and your business partners wish to operate in.
Make the Change
Demonstrating commitment to conduct business in an ethical manner begins with knowing who you do business with in your supply chain. Historically, the cost and complexity of due diligence had prohibited many organisations from conducting due diligence on all their third parties. Achieving this however, does not need to be daunting or expensive. You can make the change by committing to 100% third party compliance – which means conducting due diligence on every single third party in your business network. In November 2016 we are proud to have launched ethiXbase 2.0, the industry’s first free to access third party due diligence platform, allowing organisations to conduct free baseline screening against sanctions and enforcements on 100% of their third parties, along with cost-effective escalation options – all in a single repository.
In just under a year since its launch, ethiXbase 2.0 has seen a 400% increase in users with over 1000 global corporate users from 55 countries. We are blown away by a growing ethiXbase 2.0 community who are committed to 100% third party compliance throughout the business lifecycle.
Join the Movement
Today we are joined by many of you who continue to make changes within your own countries, economies and organisations. By joining this movement, we look forward to partnering with you on your journey towards 100% third party compliance as we collectively strive to enhance business ethics and anti-corruption compliance.
To our existing customers, we sincerely thank you for your continued support. To new customers, we welcome the opportunity to serve you with passion and excellence. On behalf of every employee at ethiXbase, I assure you that we are motivated and inspired by the opportunities that you give us to help you succeed by putting in place the right programs to protect your organisation from bribery and corruption. Everything we do at ethiXbase is aimed at making our services the best in the industry, and we will strive to continue meeting and exceeding your expectations.
