Internal controls, risks and compliance
With a modern decision-making and strategic planning structure, in line with the best market practices, JSL considers corporate governance an inducer of professionalism, innovation and achievement of the Organization's Mission, Vision and Values.
Since 2010, we have been part of the Novo Mercado by B3, the Brazilian stock exchange, which gives us a series of responsibilities in terms of ensuring transparency, equity, corporate responsibility and integrity in governance practices.
Proof of this is our independent board specializing in internal controls, risks and compliance. The Internal Controls, Risks and Compliance Department – CRC reports to the Audit Committee, in addition to providing advisory support to the Ethics and Compliance Committee and the Internal Controls and Risks Committee.
