The document focuses on defending Human Rights, Employment, the Environment and Anti-corruption.
São Paulo, SONDA has subscribed to the UN Global Compact. This document brings together 10 universal principles, divided into four groups: Human Rights, Employment, the Environment and Anticorruption Measures.
In practice, subscribing requires the company to make a commitment to develop environmental responsibility initiatives, to eliminate discrimination in employment, to eliminate all forms of forced labor and slavery, to uphold human rights, to eliminate all forms of corruption, and other initiatives.
SONDA has invested in initiatives that sustain these principles both within and outside the working environment. The company has created an Ethics Committee, and has promoted Alexandre Rocha Pinheiro from Director to Vice-President Legal and Compliance Officer.
The Ethics Committee is composed of senior company executives and aims to deter practices that deviate from the company’s principles, as well as investigate complaints from employees or suppliers.
The company has also initiated an ISO 19,600 certification process regarding compliance management and ISO 37,001 regarding anti-bribery management.
“SONDA is a leading technology supplier to the public and private sectors. Subscribing to the UN Global Compact demonstrates the company’s transparent and ethical approach to developing our business, which citizens are coming to expect of companies providing services to the government and other companies in Chile,” said Mr. Pinheiro.
The UN Global Compact began in 2000. The network has 834 subscribers in Brazil, and SONDA has subscribed to the document. Further information can be found on the organization’s website. https://www.pactoglobal.org.br/
