Governance and control

At Zirq governance and control is a key aspect of how we work. We have strict focus on our internal processes and governing structures. Compliance and traceability is crucial for our operations, and we have a comprehensive framework for compliance, which regulates all parts of our organization.

Governance and control is a central aspect of how we work. Zirq was built on the belief that waste handling should take place on a local basis. Zirq challenged the status quo which has been to send cable waste to other continents for recycling. Our mission was to ensure that we safeguard the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact on human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption. Our focus on local recycling is key, and ensures that we achieve;

  • Full traceability
  • Reduced emissions by reducing transport
  • Transparrency Act alignment, by having full control of our value chain
  • Safeguarding of human rights and labour rights through systematic governance processes connected to our suppliers and customers

Our Quality Management System, which is implemented in all the Zirq Groups’ subsidiaries, is the basis for our way of work with governance and control. It also comprises our internal compliance and governance processes, and entails our structured activities, for instance within compliance, such as:

  • Risk assessments
  • Internal audits
  • External audits
  • Supplier and Customer evaluations
  • Anti-corruption training
  • Procedures for contract management
