I. Structural: This component focuses on having an appropriate code of ethics, defining the organizational and ownership structure; contractual arrangements; responsibility of various entities, which will be associated with the ABPs Initiative

Reputational: DRC has continuously ranked low in several international rating systems, including Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index and the World Bank’s yearly Doing Business report. One key component of the governance strategy proposes ways the ABP can take advantage of being a special economic zone to adopt controls which will enable the ABP to be islands of integrity and transparency within an otherwise challenging business operating environment
III. Change Management Process: This is critical, as these efforts are geared towards behavior change by inspiring a new culture amongst ABP stakeholders and creating social controls and promoting social cohesion that goes beyond rules and laws.
