WHAT WE DO


IBLF Global is an independent not-for-profit organisation with the mission to promote economic development in emerging markets by engaging with business in practical collective action projects to raise business standards and help create a culture of integrity.

We support international companies in their key markets to implement responsible business practices, build trust, reduce corruption and reputation risk whilst working to create a level playing field. 

Our focus is on initiating and facilitating action on the ground, by providing a forum and collective action support for senior executives of global companies and their local counterparts. 

From setting the agenda to convening leaders from business, government and civil society, we facilitate the necessary consensus for collective action. The forums and discussions are only the first step towards international and local companies adapting the way they operate. 
With the help of our experienced team of cross-sector facilitators, IBLF Global brings together international, national and local companies, government agencies and NGOs to make change happen. 

Our business model is a small HQ for project initiation and coordination, knowledge sharing and local capacity building, with most actual project work carried out by local partners.

Current collective action projects cover:
• Compliance/integrity training for 3rd parties/supply chains/SMEs
• Transparent and compliant public procurement procedures
• Opening public procurement to SMEs
• Business-government integrity collective action
• Support/training/mentoring for young entrepreneurs

We are active members of the Business 20 (B-20), the private sector group advising the G-20 governments on economic and industrial policy, and currently active in Vietnam, Russia, Turkey, Kyrgyz Republic and Nigeria.
