Estre Ambiental receives ISO 37001 certification

Announced Date :  Dec 06, 2017

Estre Ambiental announced that it has received ISO 37001 certification, making it the first company in the waste management and environmental solutions industry in Brazil to be recognized for achieving international best practices for internal control programs and integrity policies.
The achievement by Estre, which is the largest waste management company in Latin America, reflects the company's strong commitment to and investments in the training of its professionals, as well as the creation and reinforcement of codes of conduct and procedures to ensure compliance with current legislation. The ISO 37001 certification also reflects the company's compliance with the requirements of the Brazilian anti-corruption regulation, Law 12.846 / 2013.

"We are proud that Estre's compliance program has received this international recognition. ISO 37001 certification is an important differentiator in our sector and underscores our strong commitment to and enforcement of the highest standards of ethics in the business," said Sergio Pedreiro, Estre's CEO.

Since 2015, the company has developed the "Estre Integrity Program", built on four pillars: Commitment, Responsibility, Risk Management and Monitoring. This program has been implemented across the Company's operational chain and involves its suppliers, who underwent significant due diligence, participated in trainings and made strong anti-bribery compliance commitments.

Estre's extensive process of analysis, structuring and auditing lasted ten months and QMS Certification Services, an Australian company of international renown, provided the certification. The ISO 37001 certification specifically affirms the presence of anti-bribery management systems that support a culture of integrity, transparency, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations, as well as appropriate risk processes and controls.
