Effective as of June 2018 Bluester GmbH is corporate member of Transparency International Deutschland e.V.
Transparency International e.V. with its more than 100 national chapters globally engages in the promotion of transparency and prevention of corruption. By aiming to be leading examples, individual and corporate members of Transparency Germany put transparency and prevention of corruption into practice at different levels and various sectors of society – in Germany and worldwide.
Transparency in business becomes a practiced principle with openly communicated and respected rules, plans, processes and actions; with people within business organisations acting visibly and understandably, reporting clearly and freely on their activities; and with allowing the general public to hold businesses to account. In this sense, transparency is based in the values of integrity, solidarity and justice. Such it counters corruption which is held to impact societies in a multitude of negative ways. Corruption in many scientific studies was found to shrink national wealth; to distort competition and to hinder the development of fair market structures; ultimately to deteriorate the social fabric of society.
Christoph Kiese, CEO of Bluester GmbH, comments on the admission of Bluester GmbH as corporate member of Transparency International Deutschland e.V.: “Through our corporate membership at Transparency International Deutschland e.V. we want to underline the principles we have built into the processes of our online marketplace: business cooperation on a win/ win principle, compliance with rules and regulations as well as true, open and fair competition. At the same time we want to leave no doubt that we as a company adhere to the principle of transparency and our values of sincerity and integrity. Everyone in our industry knows that
business preferably handled in dimmed light in the worst case costs lives. So we walk the talk and want to encourage others to follow us on this.”
Member of the Board of Transparency International Deutschland e.V. Andreas Novak explains the reasons for the registration of Bluester GmbH as corporate member: “With our individual members and our members from the corporate world, we fight for a world free of corruption. By supporting transparency and offering a platform for transparent and fair competition, Bluester GmbH can play a part in this struggle in Germany and abroad. We welcome Bluester GmbH as a corporate member of Transparency Germany.”
