Ethics & Integrity
Ethics and integrity drive our daily routine and permeate everything we do
Our governance model is based on ethical principles of transparency, equity, accountability, and corporate responsibility, in line with recognized market practices, such as the determinations of the Brazilian Institute of Corporate Governance (IBGC, in Portuguese). We believe that this is how we can contribute to building fair and sustainable businesses in favor of an efficient and righteous market. This is the way Porto of Açu conducts business.
Planning to manage risks
The risk management process is structured according to ISO 31000 guidelines, which establish principles and guidelines on risk management, and the COSO Enterprise Risk Management, an international model that guides organizations on the principles and best practices of internal control, in order to ensure maximum effectiveness.
The identified risks are reviewed periodically: the results of the review cycles are submitted to the Board of Directors, to monitor the risks and adopt the necessary decisions, which includes determining actions and directing strategies to reduce risks (mitigation).
Any attitude that violates the determinations of the Company’s Code of Conduct and Anticorruption and the legislation in force may be reported through the Denouncement Channel, a safe and confidential platform, available to employees and the public in general, with guaranteed anonymity if the whistleblower so wishes.

It is our non-negotiable commitment to act ethically and with integrity, in compliance with the applicable legislation and regulations. We follow a structured Compliance Program developed by our shareholder, Prumo Logística S.A., to prevent, identify and mitigate possible irregularities and misconducts and to disseminate high standards of ethical conduct. To this end, the Program is based on four pillars of action: prevention, identification, response, and improvement.
In building fair and sustainable business, we rely on a series of actions and tools that help us promote an ethical and honest environment, such as the Code of Conduct and Anti-Corruption, which guides all relations and formalizes the main guidelines to be observed in the conduct of our activities, and the Denouncement Channel, for the communication of any violations of the Code’s determinations and the legislation in force.
The Denouncement Channel is a secure and confidential platform, available 24 hours a day (every day of the week) for employees and the public, with guaranteed anonymity if the whistleblower so wishes.
