We believe that a sustainable society is built only when there is trust, integrity and respect to the laws. Ethics is part of the decisions of the Neoenergia Group companies, guiding the development of our business and our relationships with clients, shareholders, executives, employees, suppliers, service providers, the market and public entities.
To achieve this purpose, an integrity program adhering to Brazilian anti-corruption legislation was implemented, coordinated by the Compliance Superintendence of the group. The area, in addition to being responsible for the planning, design, execution, maintenance and evaluation of the program, elaborates and reviews codes of conduct, integrity policies and related procedures and works on the identification, evaluation and mitigation of non-compliance risks. Thus, it seeks to ensure the adherence of the companies of the Neoenergia Group to the principles of legality and anti-corruption.
