The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) is a global business network working towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption that enables fair trade to the benefit of society at large. Established in 2011 by a small group of committed maritime companies, MACN has grown to include nearly 100 members globally, and has become one of the pre-eminent examples of collective action to tackle corruption.
MACN and its members work towards the elimination of all forms of maritime corruption by: raising awareness of the challenges faced; implementing the MACN Anti-Corruption Principles and co-developing and sharing best practices; collaborating with governments, non-governmental organizations, and civil society to identify and mitigate the root causes of corruption; and creating a culture of integrity within the maritime community.
The MACN secretariat is responsible for progressing with MACN’s strategic workplans (including MACN’s 2020 strategy), ensuring good governance, and managing MACN’s day-to-day work, including with its members, third parties, and funders. MACN’s activities are overseen by the MACN Steering Committee, with active participation of the full MACN membership.
