Prati-Donaduzzi Group's Compliance program strengthens the integral culture of its companies and employees. Compliance policies are part of daily activities, so that they are in compliance with current legislation and internal rules. As a way of bringing these actions closer to the daily routines of employees, a campaign has reinforced the importance of ethical and transparent attitudes.
The campaign is called “Compliance - this is the way”. Carried out in different formats and internal communication means, it consists of a new phase of the program, which is the enhancement of Compliance activities and policies and their perception in all processes and sectors. This is because since 2018 the Prati-Donaduzzi Group has been strengthening its integrity area with the new edition of the Code of Ethics and Conduct, reformulation of the reporting channel, structuring of policies and controls, among other actions.
Compliance in practice
To be in Compliance is to act within the law, that is, to comply with ethical and transparent attitudes, in order to detect and prevent the occurrence of irregular, illegal, fraudulent and corruption acts. In practice, it consists of a set of tools that help the Group to adopt an integral conduct with employees, customers, suppliers and society. The well-structured Compliance program puts Prati-Donaduzzi as a leading player in the market for being in line with current requirements.
In Prati-Donaduzzi Group, the Compliance Committee is responsible for managing the Risks, Compliance and Corporate Governance area, but the applicability of integrity depends on each employee. “We want employees to be ambassadors for the Integrity Program and, in addition to giving their best for the company, embrace the idea of doing the right thing in any circumstance, as it has always been in the history of Prati-Donaduzzi, but now in the form of corporate policy. Making this clear to them is a way of being transparent with personal and corporate values ”, says the Committee's coordinator and financial director, Marcelo Sáfadi Alvares.
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the sectors that has more obligations with the regulatory agencies as it is committed to people's health. For Prati-Donaduzzi CEO, Eder Fernando Maffissoni, the program converges with the company's daily practice. “We work so that every day thousands of Brazilians have access to medicines with proven quality and effectiveness. This is only possible when we have a strong culture of people committed to what they do. Compliance comes to ensure even more assertiveness and conformity in our processes, helping in our sustainable development”, he evaluates.
