The Transparency International Association puts a tremendous amount of effort and passion into its work with citizens, organizations and institutions in order to strengthen Bulgaria’s private and public sectors.

We have a lot of experience in areas such as: introducing internationally recognized standards in the field of civil society development and enhancing the anti-corruption capacity of public bodies; projects and initiatives aimed at improving the functioning of the judiciary, local and central administration and businesses.

Our team shares the values and vision of our community and works individually with each company to create better working conditions for businesses in Bulgaria in the field of economy, energy and healthcare. We support companies which are introducing integrity standards, transparency and business integrity and we are currently in the process of developing a corporate responsibility self-assessment tool.
