Corruption in Denmark is examined on this page.


According to the Corruption Perceptions Index 2016 from Transparency International, Denmark is the World's most transparent country,[1] and it has consistently been in the top-4 since the publication of the first report in 1995.[2] Moreover, Transparency International's Global Corruption Barometer 2013 shows that the public does not consider corruption a major problem in Danish society, and bribes paid to access public benefits and services are virtually non-existent.[3]

The business environment regarding the ethical behaviour of companies' interaction with public officials, politicians and other enterprises, as well as the financial auditing and reporting standards among companies, are very strong, according to the Global Competitiveness Report 2013–2014.[4]

The OECD has pointed out in 2013, though, that it had "serious concerns about the lack of enforcement" of bribery paid by Danish companies abroad.[2][5]
