\uap>On a conceptual base we wanted to start a Journey towards the upgrade of Ethics in Business since our country has been living ,in the media on corruption, since 2010. We consider that a movement has to be created to stress the importance of Ethics in Business and in the society as a whole.

\uap>This event was made in different formats during 11 hours of that day, Starting with a panel of Senior Executives of Ethical companies explaining the challenges and opportunities of Ethics , This was followed of a presentation of best practices in Sustainability which have been recorded and shares over the last 15 years, Later a presentation of the implications of non-compliance with FCPA guidelines and the impacts of a DOJ intervention on the company, its employees, board, morale etc,

\uap>We then discussed the Compliance structure and challenges in a Public company. Later we had a presentation of a recent survey on Board involvement and comprehension of its role in the Culture management of companies.

\uap>To mark the beginning of this journey towards ethics in business we planted a tree - Pau-Brasil ( symbol in Brazil) in the premises of the Business Administration Council for the State of São Paulo.

\uap>We launched also a time capsule where everyone was invited to send their messages on the present and vision for the future. The capsule will be opened on Global Ethics Day -October 18th, 2025 ( mid century XXI) and serve as a benchmark of progress. The time capsule will be both phyxical and registered on the cloud.

\uap>We finished the day with a workshop on Culture transformation since this is the requirement to implement the ethical business aproach.
