Compliance Organizational
Chart and Ambassadors

At QGMI, we do not only advocate for an ethical culture in our business development, but we also work hardly to assure the entire chain of our business network (suppliers, business partners, customers, third parties, etc.) is ethical.

As we live in an increasingly globalised world, it is difficult to monitor the actions of all our partners while efficiently communicating the main points of our Programme and our Code of Ethics. To ensure and encourage good practices inside and outside QGMI, the compliance department needs to rely on collaborators to guarantee that the processes and procedures of the Compliance Programme are implemented in all its business units.

This support is achieved thanks to the Local Compliance Officers (LCOs) and the ambassadors or spokespeople who, through their work, and associated with our Compliance Systems, help the company to prevent undesired behaviours or at odds with our values, at the same time as they disclose the Compliance Programme among all the employees of their business unit.

Integrated Waste Management

At QGMI, we plan to adopt an integrated waste management approach, by assessing the various waste streams and adopting an approach of waste management. Our organic wastes are segregated, and a designed composter treats them. The result of the organic waste management can be applied to our reforestation projects.

Accugrade GPS Control System

We use a GPS technology to increase our productivity in earthmoving and grading processes. This Control System allows operators to grade more precisely and faster, which translates into higher productivity, lower operating costs, and a well-done work.

SAE (Electronic Monitoring System)

The Electronic Monitorig System was developed internally by the IT team, with the aim of monitoring the development of activities and working hours of workers and teams in real time, reducing access time to performance indicators for strategic decision making. The system, which is available in Portuguese, English, and Spanish, works via smartphone by reading QR Codes affixed to equipment and on workers’ credentials. It works even where there is no internet available, as data can be stored in the phone’s memory and transferred when there is a Wi-Fi or 4G network signal. It improves cost management, productivity control and contributes to environmental sustainability.
