    Reports and complaints can be filed on the website, by calling 0800-772-4936 from Monday to Friday, 9 am to 7 pm, or by e-mail: canaldeetica@raizen.com.

  • How do I file a report?

    It is essential to describe in detail the events that took place and the people involved in the incident. We recommend gathering as much information about the violation as possible to help with the investigation before reporting the issue and attaching documents that make it easier to understand the report. Check out some examples:

    ● Full name of those involved (complainant and victim) and registration number

    ● Location (plant, terminal, office) and city/state

    ● Witnesses

    ● Dates

    ● Details of the facts

    ● Companies, departments, or areas involved

    ● Documents or contracts related to the breach

    ● Any additional information

    The items above are not mandatory for filing a report, but they help speed up the investigation.

  • What types of attachments can I send in my report?

    You can attach photos, documents, audio or video recordings, or other files that you want in your report.

  • Should I report incidents that do not directly affect me?

    Even if you are directly affected by an incident that violates the Code of Ethics or not, do not ignore it. Please report it to help build and maintain a more ethical environment.
