Compliance Program

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and compliance, in accordance with the applicable laws of the markets in which we operate with our Global Policy and Global Anti-Corruption Procedures.

We always achieve our objectives with transparency, taking into account that we do not tolerate bribes, acts of corruption or dishonest practices of any kind. It is very important for us that in case our associates have any suspicions, information of violation of the Global Anticorruption Policy as well as the Company’s AC Procedures, or have any information of improper requests (even if they are rejected), is reported immediately to the following Global Ethics contact points.

We provide anti-corruption training to 100% of our associates. It should be noted that AC training is valid for two years.

In 2019, we trained 122,629 associates on anticorruption. This kind of training is offered to the Board of Directors once a year.

Our anti-corruption policies and procedures are communicated to all of our associates and 595 suppliers completed or renewed their anti-corruption training during 2019.

Each year, we proactively audit a sample of our third-party partners based on several factors, including the risks associated with the region where they operate and the type of service they provide. This process allows us to examine the way that third-parties respond to our anti-corruption program and identify areas where we can continue to improve our training and controls.
