Employees’ health and safety is one of the fundamental elements of priority in Zorlu Energy activities. Zorlu Energy has carried out hazard identification and risk assessment studies in all sites of activity with respect to Occupational Health and Safety.
Zorlu Energy believes employees to be the most important resource in achieving its goals and strives to create systems in support of its vision, mission, principles and values, developing, enriching and facilitating the business life. In establishing a human resources policy, the Company aimed to act responsibly towards group companies, sensitive to employees and respectful to all stakeholders involved.
The transition from the structure of staff department to human resources organization started by the end of 2005 in Zorlu Energy. The strategic HR practices developed afterwards have supported the institutionalization process; the unit has now become one of the important support functions of management. Zorlu Energy’s increasing need for employees due to new and growing business, its location and number of business fields have enabled the establishment of new human resources systems. Today, new systems are continually developed to support the motivation, development of employees from recruitment to the last work day.
Zorlu Energy companies established a quality management system in compliance with the requirements of ISO 9001 quality management standard, and specified all processes, besides adopting measures necessary for identifying and managing the risks. Zorlu Energy maintains its quality management system with a view to ever improving it through a risk-based approach.
As Zorlu Energy, a responsible corporate world citizen, and in line with our sustainability strategy;
As Zorlu Company, among our principle responsibilities lies the conformity of our suppliers, who are our most important partners in all our companies, with internationally-recognised environmental, social and ethical standards.
While choosing our suppliers, we seek conformity with Zorlu Holding Supply Chain Principles (Principles) which we have prepared in the light of all relevant national laws and regulations, notably the International Labour Organization (“ILO”) and United Nations (“UN”) agreements. We are committed to inform, to raise awareness and to provide training when necessary, in order to ensure our suppliers’ conformity with the Principles. Moreover, we expect from our suppliers to share, when deemed, necessary documents which show conformity with the Principles, within the framework of our auditing activities.
Zorlu Holding Supply Chain Principles encompass all Zorlu Group Companies’ procurement operations and contain the rules of basic behavior which are expected from all our suppliers. We expect our suppliers to communicate the Principles to their own supply chains and, in turn, the Principles to be applied by their own suppliers.
