Code of Ethical Conduct
Our Code of Ethical Conduct defines the guidelines and standards of integrity and transparency for all those who act and interact with Profertil: employees, interns, directors, suppliers, contractors, shareholders, and anyone who provides services to the Company or works on its behalf.
It regulates the principles of conduct in the workplace, the protection of the environment, the relationship with third parties and asset security, among other relevant issues.
All members of the Company adhere to the Code and have access to it. If you also wish to read it, click on the button below to download it.
To avoid these situations, we limit the acceptance and giving of gifts and select our suppliers on the basis of competitive and transparent procedures.
Likewise, the members of the Company must inform if they have any position, relationship or investment in companies or entities related to Profertil.
In Profertil, we promote a business culture open to diversity, where the differences and abilities of each individual are valued and where equal treatment of people prevails regardless of gender, own beliefs, sexual choices, age and other personal characteristics.
For this reason, we designed a Diversity and Inclusion Policy that contains guidelines on how we should act in our Company, the commitments of the leaders to create and promote a diverse and inclusive environment, a guide to expected behavior and an analysis of the benefits of reconciling work and private life.
Profertil is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethical and legal conduct in all its activities, so its third parties have a duty to adhere to the principles and values that derive from the Company’s Code of Ethical Conduct.
Consequently, we have written the “Code of Ethical Conduct for Third Parties” and the “Integrity Policy for Third Parties”, which contain the values and principles that allow us to maintain transparent business relationships, while expressing the Company’s expectations regarding the ethical conduct of third parties within the framework of its contractual relationship with Profertil.
These policies apply to our contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, associated persons, commercial intermediaries, non-commercial representatives, consultants, business partners or anyone providing services for or on behalf of the Company.
We invite you to learn about the Code and Policies and to access related statements:

Consequently, we have policies, activities and controls for the prevention, detection and response to incidents involving bribery and/or fraud, including training, risk assessment and internal audits, among others.
Profertil is an organization that does not tolerate any act of bribery or fraud by its employees or other associates. Therefore, serious measures will be taken immediately against anyone who attempts to commit fraud or bribery.
To this end, we have a procedure for identifying suspicious activities and the best knowledge of customers, suppliers and financial institutions with which we operate, while promoting the development of Internal Audit routines.
The Ethical Conduct Line is a communication channel for Profertil’s members and third parties to report any irregularity or situation that violates the provisions of our Code of Ethical Conduct.
The line is managed by an external company, which guarantees the security, anonymity and confidentiality of the reports made.
