Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations (UN) launched the 2030 Agenda,an action plan to make the planet more sustainable for people, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), representing 17 goals and 169 targets that guide the main topics addressed by the agenda.
Although JBS hasn’t formally adhered to the SDG, the company uses this platform as an important benchmark for its sustainability actions. The company understands that its strategic themes are strongly connected to some themes from the SDG, as highlighted below:
Pillars Of The JBS Compliance Program

These channels are available in 17 languages, 24 hours a day and seven days a week and can be contacted by company staff or third parties.
In 2018, the Company issued its Global Code of Conduct and Ethics applicable to every region where it operates. This document contains the various directives about what is expected of team members in terms of behavior and compliance with internal policies.
The Business Associate Code of Conduct was launched at the same time to ensure our partners are aware of the standards of conduct we expect.
