Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA) Integrity Recognition – Selo Mais Integridade – 2021/22 extends registration to June 21

04/06/2021

The MAPA Integrity Recognition (Selo Mais Integridade) was created on 12/12/2018, by MAPA Ordinance No. 2462, to recognize and reward integrity practices by agribusiness companies in terms of social responsibility, sustainability and ethics, in addition to validating their efforts to mitigate fraud, bribery and corruption. For the year 2021, agribusiness companies and cooperatives seeking recognition for these practices and for their commitment to prevent fraud and corruption have until June 21 to register for the Selo Mais Integridade 2021/22.

The 2021 edition, the fourth edition of the award, had its regulation approved by MAPA Ordinance nº 32, of 02/05/2021, which aims to improve the awarding process of companies and cooperatives through the demonstration of evolution of the Integrity Programs.

This way, the recognition now contemplates the participation of the fishing sector in the contest, besides foreseeing a better evaluation regarding the existence of Conduct Adjustment Agreements (TAC), judicial demands, and disreputable news involving the interested parties, as well as their partners or directors, when applicable.

The ceremony is scheduled for January 2022. The good practices will compete for the award in the following categories:

•         integrity and ethics,
•         social responsibility (labour focus) and environmental
•         environmental sustainability.

Companies that want to obtain the seal will soon be able to enjoy competitive advantages, such as:

  • Advancing the company’s image in the market (both internal and international);
  •  Obtaining a competitive differential
  • Adaptation to the growing market demand for suppliers with greater social and environmental responsibility

In this sense, we at Trench Rossi Watanabe can assist, among other activities, in the following adjustments:

  • Implementation or review of the compliance program, code of ethics and conduct from the perspective of the Anti-corruption Law
  • Implementation or review of the Hotline Channel
  • Training on anti-corruption compliance for employees
  • Verification of ESG pillars (in addition to anti-corruption compliance, focused on the environmental, social and occupational health and safety spheres)
  • ESG: verification of the degree of alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the UN’s Agenda 2030
