THE HOME OF CONSTRUCTION
We recognise the importance of operating in a sustainable manner, thus meeting the needs of today without jeopardising our ability to meet the needs of tomorrow.
We assume ultimate responsibility for sustainability, however management accountability is integral to delivering our sustainability objectives. Sustainability is integrated into both the governance and strategy of Gualtechy.
GUALTECHY’s sustainability objectives revolve around the following pillars:-
- OUR PEOPLE
- HEALTH AND SAFETY
- SOCIAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Our practices on safety, health and environment (SHE) policy are centred on zero harm philosophy towards people, host communities and the environment. We consistently enforce a standard approach to SHE and does not compromise our standards of conduct. We are committed to the delivery of quality workmanship.
Our people are the key stakeholders of the organisation and essential to its continued success and sustainability. As a result, we are committed to providing a safe, healthy and enabling workplace that is characterised by mutual respect, fairness, integrity, non-discrimination, equal opportunities and open, two-way engagement. We provide well-structured employment contracts and fair and competitive remuneration in accordance with our Remuneration policy and with oversight from the Remuneration committee.
Owing to the geographic diversity of our workforce, we have developed appropriate global, regional and site-based policies and programmes. We follow the guidelines promulgated by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and comply with all legislation governing conditions of employment and labour relations in the countries in which we operate.
Whenever possible, we identify internal talent for development rather than hire from outside and have a policy of developing and promoting people from within the group. Investing in the development of our people is a pro-active way of ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of our business.
HEALTH & SAFETY
As a contractor with an international footprint, operating across Zimbabwe and the Africa, it is essential that Gualtechy holds itself to the very highest health and safety standards. Construction is inherently a high-risk activity and we recognise that we have a moral and legal obligation to safeguard and protect the wellbeing of all people present on our construction sites and at our premises. We strive for a work environment that achieves ‘zero harm’, which means operating without fatalities and a minimum number of lost-time injuries.
Gualtechy understands that it has a duty and a responsibility to contribute towards redressing historical inequalities within Zimbabwe. An inclusive and representative economy in which all Zimbabweans are able to participate is vital for the future sustainability and success of the country and by virtue thereof, the sustainability of Gualtechy. Consequently, we are committed to achieving long-term, meaningful broad-based transformation within the business and the industry at large. Our commitment is to actively pursue the transfer of skills and economic benefits to previously disadvantaged individuals and local communities, while also seeking to promote representation of these individuals within the various management structures of Gualtechy
We strive to ensure the highest levels of quality are achieved across every facet of our operations. The aim of quality management is to ensure that the highest levels of quality are consistently attained on all projects by using the best and latest construction practices within the core activities of the Group. By continuously improving and evolving our processes in a collaborative way, we ensure compliance with our own internal standards as well as external specifications, thereby enhancing client satisfaction. The quality management system is certified against ISO 9001 requirements in all areas of operation, and a dedicated team of quality personnel ensure continuous compliance with this standard.
SOCIAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
We build up communities
Gualtechy has always embraced the concept of social responsibility as a moral obligation, having implemented programmes well before the introduction of legislative laws. One of our policy is to ensure that our programmes are implemented according to approved guidelines. Programmes are designed to benefit both the community and the Group in a sustainable, measurable, tangible and transparent manner. We understand that construction companies are well placed to uplift communities particularly in the remote rural areas where we operate. Our aim is to provide assistance within our field of expertise.
