MozUp Named Finalist for Basel Institute on Governance's Anti-Corruption Award

May 16, 2023

MozUp, the Enterprise Development Center in Mozambique, has been selected as one of three finalists for the Basel Institute on Governance’s Anti-Corruption Collective Action award. Presented annually, the award recognizes initiatives that contribute to the fight against corruption. MozUp was nominated by the Ethics Institute, an independent institute in South Africa that works to strengthen the ethical standards of businesses and organizations internationally.

MozUp partnered with the Ethics Institute to develop and deliver a Key Principles of Business Ethics seminar. The seminar is tailored to the Mozambican context and provides businesses with the tools they need to implement ethical practices.

“We are honored to be selected as a finalist for this award and are proud of our work with the Ethics Institute,” said Barbara Habib, MozUp’s Director. “By empowering local companies with tools to practice ethical business, we help to support a sustainable, competitive, and transparent operating environment that improves the overall success of the business and encourages additional investment and development in the local economy.”

Sponsored by Area 4 Partners of the Rovuma Basin in Mozambique, MozUp was launched in 2020 to strengthen Mozambican businesses and create a more competitive and capable marketplace across the various growing sectors of the Mozambican economy, including the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector. Working with local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), MozUp provides training, mentoring, and networking opportunities to improve business processes, management, and overall operations, including the promotion of ethical business practices.
