Business transparency, fairness, accountability and responsibility are principles that our organization highly respects and which we reaffirm every day, in line with international standards related to good corporate governance practices. We extract what is essential to the present, with a responsible view of the future, designed to generate value for us and for society. We go beyond efficiency and technical rigor; we seek to win over the trust of people and the markets. Our main policies are established by the Board of Directors and supported by four advisory committees: Finance; Compensation, Nominations and Governance; Audit (composed entirely of independent directors); and the newly created Sustainability committee. GRI 103-2, 103-3
We have been a publicly traded company since 2017, with shares traded on the New York/NYSE (United States) and Toronto/TSX (Canada) stock exchanges. Even before the company’s initial public offering, we already had structured governance bodies to guarantee autonomy and speed in decision making and the definition of business strategies.
Our governance model is constantly improving, allowing us to generate more value for shareholders and society. In addition to the creation of the new Sustainability Committee to support the company in adopting and monitoring safe and sustainable operating and commercial practices, the Board now comprises ten members, one more than in 2018.
