Our
ethical code

This Code of Ethics defines the guidelines and standards of integrity and transparency to which all employees of Global Metwire Injection SL must adhere, regardless of their hierarchical level or specialty.

Sustainability in everything we do

At GMI we seek long-term solutions for both our clients and for society and our planet, which is why we aim to create sustainable solutions, projects and products at all levels:
We evolve towards and invest in being more energy efficient, having a neutral carbon footprint, as well as zero waste by applying the concept of circular economy to our value chain.
We apply the highest standards and the most upright and honest values, fighting for social equality in all senses, the right to decent work and the continuous professional and personal growth of our workers.
Sustainability at all other levels would be meaningless if we did not provide a quality product to our customers. Additionally, we constantly innovate to improve the value we can bring to them, as well as to our society and industry.
Forgotten by many idealists, we understand that to be real, sustainability must include business economic profitability both for us and for our clients, as well as for our country and global economy, if we want to continue advancing in the long term, which is why we seek that our business is as profitable as the purchase of our products by our customers.
In order not to lose focus on so many dimensions, we rely on the Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations in 2015, aligning our integrated management system with these objectives, as well as incorporating and certifying the most important ISOs for our clients, our society, our planet and us.

Reach

The REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) entered into force on June 1, 2007. This new regulation replaces around 40 other existing European Regulations and Directives to provide a single regulation system for chemical compounds.

The European Union (EU) chemicals policy, REACH, aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the improvement and early identification of the intrinsic properties of chemicals. In addition, it enables the innovative capacity and competitiveness of the EU chemical industry to be improved.

REACH obliges manufacturers or importers to register with the European Agency for Chemical Substances and Preparations (ECHA) the substances as such, in the form of a preparation or contained in articles and that are placed on the European Union Market within a threshold limit of one ton per year. Distributors and downstream users will also be subject to REACH, as long as they use substances in the exercise of their professional or industrial activity.

Global Metwire Injection, following its usual policy of maximum responsibility in legislative matters, informs you of the measures it has taken since 2011 regarding the REACH regulation, which aims to guarantee a high level of protection of human health and the environment, as well as the free circulation of substances.

Global Metwire Injection acts as a downstream user and as an importer, depending on the material.

As downstream users, you have been and are in contact with your suppliers to ensure that they have taken the appropriate measures regarding their obligations regarding REACH of the raw materials contained in the products they supply you. These suppliers have confirmed to us, through registration, the compliance with REACH for all the relevant substances they use. Likewise, it has provided information to suppliers on the use made of their raw materials to guarantee that these are included as identified uses in the registration of substances.

As an importer, Global Metwire Injection has a REACH registration for some substances.
