Pillars of J&F’s Compliance Program

Hover over each pillar to learn more about it

Whistleblowing and Investigation Channel

Our ethics channel is confidential, external and independent, available 24 hours a day to anyone, through phone, email and website, expanding your access as much as possible.

Commitment and support from senior management

We believe that in order to have a robust program and strengthen a culture of compliance and transparency, our leadership must be guardians and examples of integrity and ethics.

Due Diligence

Prior analysis and periodic review of third parties and business partners, whether individuals or legal entities, is essential to mitigate integrity risks in these relationships. This assessment avoids a relationship with companies or partners that may expose us to a deviation from the Code of Conduct or even legal risks.

Internal Controls

Internal controls establish the rules for the review and approval of activities, documentation, processing and recording of transactions, ensuring transparency and minimizing operational and compliance risks.

Continuous Improvement

Continuous improvement goes beyond the expectations and requirements of the organization’s stakeholders, it also includes the constant changes in the market and technology. With this, Compliance faces a paradigm shift in the discovery of new tools, keeping alive the updating of policies and procedures so that they are aligned with laws, regulations and best practices, never failing to look to the future.

Risk Assessment

The foundation of the compliance program is a robust analysis of integrity and compliance risks. The process is carried out to understand our main weaknesses and guide the adoption of mitigation mechanisms appropriate to the relevance of any risks and their continuous monitoring.

Code of Conduct, Compliance Procedures Policies

The Code of Conduct is the reference document for all our business to be conducted in compliance with laws, ethics, integrity and transparency. It is the basis for relationships with government entities, public agents, suppliers, business partners and among the employees themselves.

Monitoring & Auditing

The effectiveness of the Compliance Program is measured by the performance of indicators divided into eight pillars. The monitoring of the execution of the programs by the controlled companies is constantly carried out by the Internal Audit and Compliance areas of the holding company.

Communications & Training

Codes, policies and procedures are ineffective if they are not known, mastered and experienced in the daily lives of all employees and business partners. For this reason, we invest heavily in communication and training of employees from the first day of work, strengthening the culture of integrity.
