CITAC Africa Ltd is a UK-based, independent consultancy company focusing on the African Energy market. We operate in the UK and extensively in Africa. We are committed to doing business in an honest, ethical and fair manner. Consequently, we take a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption.
CITAC Africa Ltd condemns corruption in all its forms and will not tolerate it in our business or in the businesses we have relationships with. From the confines of our working environments, it is sometimes difficult to grasp the scale of the damage that bribery and corruption does to societies. It is not a victimless crime. Bribery and corruption violate democratic values and undermine the rule of law.
Under the UK Bribery Act 2010, those who commit bribery or corruption offences could face up to ten years’ imprisonment or an unlimited fee regardless of whether the crime is committed in the UK or abroad. If CITAC Africa Ltd has taken part in bribery or corruption, the company could also face an unlimited fine and lasting damage to our reputation.
CITAC Africa has drawn up an Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy in which the responsibilities of CITAC Africa Ltd and all those working for it are set out. In this Policy, the company sets out details of how its directors and workers should behave and what they should do if they are confronted with bribery or corruption.
To avoid bribery and corruption in its business dealings, CITAC Africa is committed to complying with all relevant laws in the UK, including the Bribery Act 2010, and everywhere else where the company does business.
