Implicit in our corporate philosophy is the importance of sound corporate governance. We have an independent JBS USA Advisory Board to support the company’s executive leadership on matters related to corporate governance, government and regulatory affairs, commodity risk management and marketing. Our JBS USA Advisory Board is made up of independent members, ensuring that credible, expert voices of objectivity help guide the direction of our business. The board meets quarterly, in addition to providing ongoing counsel to the JBS USA CEO and executive leadership team.
The Ethics and Compliance Group (ECG) has a dual reporting structure to the Independent Advisory Board and the CEO for JBS USA and to the Board of Directors and the CFO for Pilgrim’s. The ECG is responsible for managing the JBS USA and Pilgrim’s “Ethics Line” and for developing, administering and training on the policies and procedures ancillary to the Code of Conduct & Ethics, including anti-bribery/anti-corruption, anti-trust/competition, international trade and sanctions, conflicts of interest and gifts. Additionally, the ECG monitors compliance through investigations, assessment and analysis of the Ethics Line, and one-on-one consultations with employees regarding specific situations.
JBS USA also has a Supplier Code of Conduct, which is administered by the ECG, and requires third-party vendors to adopt and demonstrate the same commitment by following acceptable standards of business conduct and integrity and complying with all applicable laws, regulations and rules.
