compliance pillars

Our Ethics and Compliance System is designed into three levels of action: prevention, detection, and response. Preventive measures include, among other, compliance risk management, an enhanced due diligence process, guidelines and procedures, a comprehensive annual training plan and guidance for employees.

Communication channels such as our “Ethical Channel” reporting system as well as fair internal investigations are indispensable to recognizing and resolving matters of misconduct. The system is designed itself to provide an overall control of all QGMI operations, especially in the most sensitive jurisdictions.

In order to keep a cycle of improvement, our Ethics and Compliance System is based on n 7 Pillars, globally recognized:

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.
