Founded in 2003, the Brazilian Institute of Ethics in Competition (ETCO) is a civil society organization of public interest - OSCIP that promotes integrity in the business environment. We believe that fair competition is one of the main foundations of economic development and building a stronger and more just nation.

Our job is to identify, discuss, propose and support initiatives to strengthen ethics and reduce illicit practices that cause market imbalances, such as tax evasion, informality, counterfeiting, smuggling and other misconduct.

ETCO is maintained by companies and associations committed to the cause of fair competition.

The ETCO comprises four sectorial chambers, bringing together companies in the fuel, tobacco, beer and soft drink segments.

Our mission

"Fighting unfair competition in order to promote the improvement of the business environment".
