This case story concerns the implementation of the 10th Principle of the United Nations Global Compact in the city of Veracruz, which has been a participant of the United Nations Global Compact’s city programme since June 2005. Veracruz is a major port city on the Gulf of Mexico. With a population of about 700,000, it is Mexico’s third largest Gulf city and an important port on Mexico’s east coast.
Mexico is one of the countries that is perceived as having a serious corruption problem (see Transparency International, Country Index), an image that has been enhanced by political scandals and the uncovering of irregular
use of public resources.
