Promoting better ethics and compliance practices will help encourage more companies to adopt them, and will help us be more efficient at mitigating the risks that could cast doubt on our integrity.
In September, Fernando Dyer, our Corporate Risks and Compliance Manager was a panelist at the launch ceremony of the Peruvian Ethics and Complaince Association, a non-profit organization seeking to develop and promote internal and external regulatory compliance practices among companies.
At the event, which gathered a great number of compliance officers and legal managers, Fernando presented our Risks and Compliance Program. This program aims at ensuring that the company has a consistent ethical behavior, by complying with the guidelines laid down by the Board of Directors and implemented with the support and commitment of the General Management.
He explained that the surveillance and control measures of the program are focused on identifying and mitigating the risks to which the company can be exposed, and are aligned with our values, our code of business conduct, and the international legal framework that regulates us―which, in the case of Peru, is defined, among others, by Law 30424, amended by Legislative Decree 1352, which regulates legal entities’ administrative liability for transnational active bribery (cohecho activo transnacional).
“Our transformation continues, and the proof that the process is working is that the guidelines set are followed by our business units and appreciated by our clients and business partners, among others. Every time we come across an improvement, we adopt it as we move forward”, he said.
