Advancing Responsible Tax Practice

Inclusive economies depend on fair, effective tax systems. A strong tax base helps create the conditions necessary for investment in critical infrastructure and services, which in turn guarantee sustainable development and growth.

Corporate tax plays a fundamental role in building a healthy tax base and a company’s tax contribution also affords it a social license to operate. We believe that businesses can lead the drive toward better tax practice and tax systems. Our Responsible Tax Principles provide a foundation for action.
