At ISA, we have evolved. We have a higher purpose, embodied in a phrase as beautiful as it is challenging: CONNECTIONS THAT INSPIRE. This allows us to turn the physical act of connecting into something different. This purpose guides our business philosophy, exceeds the limits of our business, places us in the focus of meaningful conversations for society, and represents great challenges and commitments we undertake with dedication and commitment. In accordance with our higher purpose, we advance towards a new strategic vision aimed at evolving from the concept of profitable growth to Sustainable Value, which necessarily includes business ethics as a guiding principle.
Ethics defines the global nature of the organization. It is the main pillar for generating confidence among our stakeholders, as it is identified as the intrinsic characteristic of our administrators and employees. ISA and its companies have based their identity on ethical principles grounded on the adoption of honest, coherent, suitable, and responsible conducts that promote the strategic cycles and ensure responsible value generation for all stakeholders.
Based on our Code of Ethics and Conduct and on ethical actions and attributes promulgated, the Ethics and Compliance Business Program has been designed, through which ISA and its companies seek to strengthen ethics as a cultural feature that influences each of our decisions and actions. Likewise, it allows to manage, in each geography and business, regulatory compliance related to the risk events of fraud, corruption, bribery, money laundering, and terrorism financing, which may affect business resources and therefore, the reputation and sustainability of the Group.
