Ethics and transparency

The Supplier Code of Conduct

is a set of our minimum requirements for our suppliers of goods and providers of services in the supply chain to comply with the law, our core valuesand the principles of social responsibility. As part of our Supplier Code of Conduct, we have taken into account the principle that the supplier conducts its business honestly and ethically. A supplier shall not resort to any form of corruption or bribery, whether in dealing with government officials, public officials, customers or business partners.

Compliance

we maintain a system to manage our compliance with all obligations and relevant regulations and to promote and adopt compliance and to prevent any non-conformities. Compliance ensures that provisions of generally applicable law are fully complied with and no laws are broken. More and more often compliance is viewed as an indispensable element of successfully managing an enterprise in the legal and economic space. Maintaining the principle of legality and therefore creating an efficient compliance system remains a joint responsibility of the whole company.

The Compliance Officer is responsible for the compliance system in the organization, and, as a rule, strives to prevent violations of the law, in particular, committing crimes that originate in the enterprise and may cause significant damage to the enterprise through the risk of the enterprise sustaining reputational damage or being held liable for violations of the law. One of the compliance management standards is ISO 19600, ISO 37001.

The Code of Ethics

sets out the minimum standards of behaviour that apply to all employees. According to this document, all business decisions are made with honesty and integrity, based on objective factors such as cost, quality, value, service and the ability to meet obligations. Moreover, according to the Code of Ethics, all employees are obliged to avoid any actions or relationships that might be inconsistent or appear to be inconsistent with the interests of the Group.

In 2018, an independent audit body confirmed the implementation by ZPUE S.A. of Integrated Quality, Environment and Health and Safety Management System based on three ISO standards. This is a very important point for the Company and a significant indicator for business partners across the world that ZPUE can be most trusted.

Being aware of these requirements, the Management Board of ZPUE SA decided to implement an integrated quality, environment and health and safety management system.

ZPUE has implemented and proved the application of an Integrated Management System based on three standards: ISO 9001: 2015 - confirming management in the area of quality, ISO 14001: 2015 confirming the company's care for the natural environment, and, for the first time, OHSAS 18001:2007 on occupational health and safety. (to date the company has held the following certificates: ISO 9001 2008 and ISO 14001 2008

In the first half of July 2018, five auditors from TÜV Nord inspected the management systems in ZPUE plants in terms of quality, environmental and health and safety standards. No non-conformities were found. Only some improvements to the operation of the system were recommended and we immediately started implementing them.

Climate and environment

We meet the requirements of the ISO 14001: 2015 standard, which confirms the company's approach to the natural environment.

Under all circumstances, all employees of ZPUE SA always act responsibly in the areas of quality and the environment in order to improve customer satisfaction and to ensure that pro-environment efforts are most effective, as well as to avoid environmental pollution and continuously reduce the negative impact on the environment.

We pursue environmental goals based on the principles of sustainable development by:

  • a systemic approach to quality and the environment, including continuous improvement of the Integrated Management System and procedures necessary to deliver our clients' orders. This approach is closely related to compliance with legal regulations on environmental protection.
  • eliminating risks to the natural environment.
  • systematically training all our employees and individuals acting on behalf of and for ZPUE SA in the quality and environmental management techniques, and motivating employees to achieve our quality and environmental goals.

In addition to reliable solutions, we offer to our customers and suppliers a package of values and advantages that are effective in improving customer satisfaction.

We are trustworthy

From the 2017 opinion poll carried out by the GfK Polonia sp.z o.o. Institute / CE Business & Social Research on a group of 352 clients from the energy and industrial sectors, we obtained the best results for reputation in the following areas:

  • We always work on and bring to the market new solutions that save energy and the environment

Our steps towards a responsible supply chain

01. Supplier selection

02. Honest collaboration

03. Joint projects

We continuously adapt and modify the supply chain and, for materials identified as potentially at risk, a purchasing strategy is implemented to:

  • find alternative sources of supply
  • replace the problem material with a standard material with high availability create a supplier's deposit stock warehouse
  • provide a supplier with the purchase forecast

Our Purchasing Platform ensures full transparency of purchasing procedures. In the near future, full acceptance of the general terms of purchase and our Code of Ethics will be the necessary condition to participate in procurement procedures and auctions announced on the Purchasing Platform.

Society

The “Jesteśmy Blisko” Foundation

Our economic success goes hand in hand with our social commitment, as evidenced by numerous projects, efforts and activities for the local community. We invest in the development of children and youth, we fight poverty and social exclusion. We strive to build our social bonds and also by using the help of the “Jesteśmy Blisko” Foundation, established in 2010.

Małgorzata Wypychewicz, Founder of the “Jesteśmy Blisko” Foundation

We want to be closer to achieve more

„My husband and I established the “Jesteśmy Blisko” Foundation out of the need of the heart and the spur of the moment. The impulse for action was my sudden illness, devastating diagnosis and winning the fight for life. Then I realized that without the support of others, I would not have been able to go through it all. This is why I decided to help others - our employees and their families first, and with time all those in need in our region. This is how our Foundation was created, which today is a safe haven for anyone who finds themselves in extraordinarily tough circumstances.”
