We are committed to a culture of integrity, where honesty, respect and dignity are critical conditions in interpersonal and professional relationships.
We believe that following robust standards of corporate governance, ethics and integrity is the key to continuing our history of more than 70 years of operations.
Based on these values and on the support and commitment of Carioca Engenharia’s senior management, we created our Compliance Program, which includes the rules, standards and ethics procedures to be complied with by all shareholders, directors, employees, vendors, business partners, clients and third parties that have any connections with Carioca.
In 2020, to further our Compliance Program, Carioca implemented a Compliance, Antitrust and Anti-Bribery Management System (acronym in Portuguese: SGACC) based on the requirements of current regulations, where compliance, anti-corruption, anti-bribery and antitrust actions were taken according to specific procedures and controls, for the purposes of meeting the needs of the construction industry and stakeholders, and complying with the laws.
To encourage ethical conduct in our business, we have prepared a Code of Conduct which outlines the values, mission and principles that should guide the conduct expected of all employees.
Our Ethics Committee monitors and evaluates all cases that may potentially violate the provisions of these instruments. The following violation reporting channels are always available:

Violation reporting boxes available at our administrative offices and construction sites.
Aware of our role in society and our commitment to building a fairer and more ethical industry, Carioca is part of some anti-corruption programs:
- Since 2020, we have been signatories to Business Pact for Integrity and Against Corruption, by Instituto Ethos.
- Carioca Engenharia is a founder of MISEC (Movement for the Integrity of Engineering and Construction). Created in 2019 from a joint effort of multiple construction companies, Misec is supported by the Global Compact Network Brazil, the United Nations, and Instituto Ethos.
- On November 17, 2022, Carioca, maintaining its leading role in promoting ethics, became a member of IBRIC (Brazilian Institute for Self-Regulation in the Infrastructure Sector). It is committed to promoting the self-regulation of member companies in matters that include ethics, transparency, integrity, sustainability and corporate governance, helping to strengthen the industry.
