BP Bunge Bioenergia, one of the country’s leaders in ethanol, sugar, and bioelectricity, was recognized in the 2023/2024 edition of the “Mais Integridade Seal”, awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAPA) to companies that adopt good integrity practices from the perspective of social responsibility, environmental sustainability, ethics, as well as a commitment to inhibiting fraud, bribery and corruption. The award ceremony took place last Thursday (21), at MAPA headquarters in Brasília/DF, with the participation of representatives from the entire Brazilian agricultural sector.

Present at the ceremony, BP Bunge’s CEO, Geovane Consul, highlighted the importance of this recognition for the company. “The Mais Integridade Seal makes tangible our progress in fulfilling commitments made since 2021, when we began our ESG journey and defined an agenda of corporate goals involving environmental, social and governance aspects. One of our goals is to become a benchmark for corporate governance and ethics in our market by 2030, and this achievement demonstrates that we are on the right track,” said the CEO.

As for Joanna Portella, Legal and Compliance Director at BP Bunge, who also took part in the event, she emphasized how essential the initiative is to foster an increasingly honest environment for boosting business. “I think this Seal is fundamental to strengthening our culture of transparency and integrity. We are committed to constantly seeking out the best practices that contribute to the proper development of our operations and the promotion of our values,” she said.

The Seal entails meeting a series of requirements and proving that the company has initiatives in practice, such as a compliance program, a code of ethics and conduct, effective and independent whistleblowing channels, actions focused on social responsibility and environmental sustainability, as well as promoting training to improve the organizational culture.

They must also be up to date with their labor obligations, have no cases of adulteration or falsification of processes or products, have good agricultural practices in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and have no history of environmental crimes. The documentation is analyzed by a Steering Committee made up of representatives from public and private institutions, such as the Alliance for Integrity, the Ethos Institute and Rede Brasil Institute of Global Compact, among others.

With this recognition, the winners can use the Mais Integridade Seal brand on their products, commercial websites, advertisements and publications.
