According to PwC's Misthal, "Many industrial manufacturing companies are taking a zero-tolerance approach to bribery and corruption so as not to risk penalties from regulators and potential damage to brand value and share price. In response, companies are prioritizing anticorruption initiatives that mandate effective 'tone at the top' and are sending a consistent message opposing economic crime."
