New/sb works in partnership with CGU so as to ensure it is compliant with integrity requirements. Bruno’s task therefore is to closely monitor New/sb and its practices, making sure that no ethical principal law is bent or ignored accidentally or purposefully. To this end, the company also has an ’employee ethics committee’.
New/sb prides itself, under the stewardship of Bruno, for creating a ‘code of conduct’ that respects and follows the anti-corruption law. By consulting with CGU, New/sb became the only corporate to team up with CGU in an effort to mitigate corrupt practices with rules. New/sb is now the first company run and owned by Brazilians to participate in the ‘international advertising competition’. Another first for New/sb is its move to forward its ‘code of conduct’ to CGU, the chief organ of transparency in Brazil.
