Sustainability is a key focus for Qmerit. 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.
Our People & CommunitiesAligned with U.N. SDGs 3, 4, 5, 8 & 10
A deep commitment to social responsibility—and to our people and communities—is core to who we are as a company. Qmerit believes people are at the heart of our business. We take pride in our outstanding work culture and strive to be an optimal employer to our workforce, as well as a valued partner to our communities.
Diversity, Inclusion & Equity
A core value of Qmerit is diversity in all its forms. Equal opportunity is integral to our recruitment process, as we view an inclusive community of diverse talent as a strong competitive advantage and critical to our success. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion applies to all levels the organization.
Health & Safety
The health and safety of our employees, customers and vendors is of the utmost importance to us. For Qmerit, the only acceptable goal for Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) and Lost Time Incident Rate (LTIR) numbers is zero.
Culture, Engagement & Growth
Qmerit believes in fun, spirited work environments that reward innovation and collaboration. We aim to foster both personal and professional growth for employees at all levels.
Compensation & Benefits
The first step in hiring and retaining the best talent is to create safe and inspiring workplaces where people feel valued and part of the team. We offer competitive compensation and benefits to all regular full-time employees.
Strengthening Our Communities
Contributing to the enrichment of the communities where we work and live is an important part of what we do. We look to create competitive-paying, skilled jobs, and we give back via various local charitable activities.
