Identification and assessment of compliance risks
Policies and procedures
Development and review of policies and procedures
Training and communication
Sharing and strengthening the culture through training and communication
Conflicts of interest
Analysis and monitoring of potential conflicts of interest
Third party management
Analysis and monitoring of third parties
Control and monitoring
Control mechanisms and indicators to monitor the Compliance Program
Governance and reporting
Reporting lines and continuous development of the Compliance Program
Code of Ethics and Conduct
The Suzano Code of Ethics and Conduct is a tool that guides our actions and decisions. It ensures that our activities reflect ethical behavior and cultivates respect in relationships with our stakeholders.
We have zero tolerance for corruption and recognize the importance of transparency and integrity. Therefore, we act in compliance with national and international anti-corruption laws and strive to maintain healthy relationships with governments, business partners and other stakeholders.
Integrity in the Value Chain
Together with other private sector companies, we stand by our public commitment to operating with integrity. To explore this subject, read the document “Private Sector Commitment to Integrity in the Value Chain.”
Internal and external ombudsman
Our complaints channel is confidential and independent. It is available to our entire team and the general public to report situations that may violate the Suzano Code of Ethics and Conduct, our policies and standards, and go against current laws applicable to business where we operate.
The channel guarantees anonymity, if requested by the complainant. The investigation of reports is impartial and aims to determine veracity and apply appropriate measures. We do not allow or tolerate any form of retaliation against anyone who files a report.
UN Global Compact
Suzano is a signatory to the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, which formalizes good business practices that must be followed by companies that have committed to the initiative.
