The QGMI Ethics and Compliance Programme is a strategic key element for companies’ sustainable grow. For us, compliance means much more than just adhering to the laws and to the regulations described in the QGMI compliance framework. Our Compliance Programme forms the basis for all our decisions and activities, and it is one of the main elements to conduct business.

For QGMI, the Ethics and Compliance Programme applies worldwide and across all levels of the organization. In addition to combating corruption, unfair competition and export-control violations, the compliance department also protects our company against fraud and money laundering and safeguards personal data and human rights. We are also committed to the highest international ethical standards and integrity initiatives such as the United Nation Global Compact and International Anticorruption Day celebration.

The QGMI Ethics and Compliance Programme is a constantly evolving crime prevention system, always seeking to anticipate trends in the sector, which has enabled it to obtain ISO 37001 (Anti-Bribery System) and ISO 37301 (Compliance Superstructure).

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.

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.
