Two mechanisms are used to guarantee our commitment to ethics and integrity. One is the Code of Ethics and Conduct, a highest-level policy that establishes the guidelines for conduct to be followed by all company employees. The other one is the Whistleblowing Channel, where any employee can report any conduct that may imply a breach of our Code of Ethics and Conduct.
