Our Commitments to Combating Corruption
AFD Group pays particular attention to the proper allocation of its financing and takes steps to ensure that its funds are used for the intended purposes. We promote the highest norms and standards for integrity: fair practices, financial transparency and zero tolerance for prohibited practices.


AFD Group’s general policy sets out the commitments to prevent, detect and fight against any act of corruption, fraud, money laundering, terrorist financing and anti-competitive practices that would tarnish its activities or operations.

Preventing and fighting against any prohibited practice are core issues for the Group’s mandate and strategic directions.

All AFD Group’s financial partners (counterparties, beneficiaries, service providers, contractors), officers (including members of the Executive Committee and Senior Management) and Board members contribute to promoting these values and respecting these commitments.




United Nations General Assembly is holding a special session on the “Challenges and measures to prevent and combat corruption and strengthen international cooperation,” on June 2 to 4, 2021, in New York. During the session, the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs presented France’s anti-corruption strategy in its cooperation activities.

The document on this strategy was drafted in consultation with all the French institutions concerned, including AFD Group. The new strategy is designed to support France in its work toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular Goal 16 on building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels. It is fully in line with AFD Group’s commitments to prevent and fight prohibited practices.
