Case Study on MACN's Argentina Collective Action Published

MACN is pleased to share a new case study outlining the process and outcomes of our collective action in Argentina. 

In line with its strategy and in an effort to reduce corrupt demands, MACN pursued a collective action in Argentina beginning in 2014, which resulted last year in the successful adoption of a new regulatory framework for dry bulk shipping that reduces corruption risks for the industry and elevates the country’s culture of integrity.
