March 23 – Sports integrity body SIGA has listed on the European Union Transparency Register which makes information public on how the body governs itself as well as information on its financial structure.
This is the second measure of 30 that SIGA is announcing via its new global campaign #SIGASTRIVES.
By signing to the Transparency Register, SIGA commits to follow the Code of Conduct that governs the dialogue between the EU institutions and the civil society.
SIGA said this will “will further contribute to promote a better understanding of the activities SIGA develops to achieve its goals and enhance the governance and integrity across sport and the wider sporting industry.”
“SIGA is committed to lead by example. All relevant information related to our internal governance has been available on our website since our inception,” said Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, CEO of SIGA and Chairman and CEO of SIGA AMERICA.
“As an organisation that instigates cultural change across the sporting industry and advocates the highest transparency and integrity standards, joining the EU Transparency Register was a natural logical step. We trust it may also stimulate the European public and private sectors and all citizens to participate more actively and further strengthen the democratic life of the EU.”
