Another key focus for Qmerit is sustainability. We believe our mission revolves around the sustainability of our environment, our people and stakeholders, and the governance of our company.
Qmerit uses the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as one tool for evaluating our impact and how we are living up to our ESG objectives. The SDGs represent a leading framework and set of objectives for impact for a wide range of parties interested in sustainability. Qmerit’s ESG objectives are aligned with many of the SDGs as outlined below.
Our business is providing electrification solutions for sustainability. Qmerit aims to embed sustainability and environmental stewardship in everything we do. We believe we have a responsibility to minimize the energy, carbon, water, and waste impacts of our business. We also recognize these impacts occur not just in the daily operations of our business, but throughout our value chain including suppliers and customers.
Qmerit strives to reduce environmental impacts across the full lifecycle of our services, and for our business overall. Qmerit tracks and reports the direct carbon emissions resulting from our operations, which come primarily from service vehicles and our corporate operations such as offices and warehouses.
Because Qmerit delivers products and services that reduce the environmental footprint of our customers, we also track and report on these impacts—specifically, CO2 emissions.
Qmerit believes good governance is essential to creating and preserving value for all of our stakeholders. This includes a sound approach to corporate governance that complies with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and policies, as well as unwavering adherence to our values.
We have an effective and highly skilled Board of Directors with three committees: Audit, Compensation, and Corporate Governance and ESG Compliance. Each committee has a specific mandate to ensure Qmerit fulfills the highest possible standards for equity, fairness, transparency and ethics.
Our directors and all employees, including senior management, conduct themselves in accordance with the highest moral and ethical standards, informed by a robust Code of Business Conduct and Ethics. Qmerit maintains:
Qmerit demands all employees maintain the highest level of integrity and objectivity in performing their job duties. Employees are expected to conduct their business dealings with suppliers, vendors and customers in a manner that will avoid any conflict of interest, or appearance of a conflict of interest between the employee’s interests and the interests of the company.
