Anti-bribery and corruption statement

CDC will not pay and will not condone the payment or receipt of bribes, facilitation or other forms of corrupt payments. Not only are such payments in violation of CDC’s Code of Responsible Investment, but CDC regards them to be wholly incompatible with its mission to build businesses, create jobs and make a lasting different to people’s lives in developing countries. CDC seeks to promote this simple principle wherever it operates. Click here to read CDC’s anti-corruption statement.

Constraints on the availability of information

CDC aims to be as transparent as possible in providing information to the public. However, some information cannot be disclosed because to do so would breach contractual and commercial confidentiality. Information to which exemptions from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 apply may also be withheld. Where required, CDC will consider whether it is in the public interest for information to which exemptions apply to be disclosed.

Data disclaimer

Whilst we have used our reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of data, certain data has not been audited or independently verified. Most of the data has been provided to us by our fund managers.

Data on employment and taxes paid has been received from many but not all of CDC’s investee businesses (81% of CDC portfolio companies report employment data while 57% of portfolio companies report tax data). We have received this data from the fund managers that have invested our capital (and that of others) in these businesses.

Employment data may include contract workers and other non-permanent workers. Tax data mostly refers to corporate taxes paid by CDC’s portfolio companies.

We will continue to seek to improve data quality and enrich our knowledge management systems.
