At ZT Systems, we view Corporate Social Responsibility as a whole-of-business commitment to promote respect and wellbeing for our employees, our communities, and our world. We understand that social and environmental factors have transformed the way business is conducted, and we are dedicated to leadership in social accountability, community, sustainability, and governance practices.
ZT Systems is a member of the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) which sets standards in the electronics industry for human rights, health and safety, and environmental initiatives. We conduct internal and third-party audits to ensure our workplaces—and our suppliers’—are places where employees are treated with dignity and respect.
ZT Systems supports initiatives that protect fundamental human rights—not only for our employees, but for those of our suppliers. Livable wages, restraints on forced overtime, forbidding the use of slave, forced, or indentured labor, and safe processes to address grievances are some of the employment practices implemented to secure the dignity of every employee.
ZT Systems works to ensure each of our suppliers operates under the guidance of the Responsible Minerals Initiative to prevent the use of minerals that are sourced from conflict regions. Our suppliers provide us with Certificates of Compliance for all components used in our products.
Holding ourselves and our suppliers to the highest standards of integrity is central to ZT Systems’ values. As part of our commitment to ethical and legal conduct, ZT uses frequent audits and reporting systems to ensure strict compliance in regulatory domains ranging from import/export, anti-corruption, and intellectual property to labor practices and human rights.
ZT Systems works with our customers to empower people and communities through cloud computing. Consistent with that value, we’re proud to partner with charitable organizations and initiatives that help people reach their full potential. We support worthy causes, including major healthcare facilities in our communities, and our team members are empowered to give back through coordinated volunteering events and a generous gift matching program.
ZT works with our customers and suppliers to ensure a culture of inclusion and diversity in our workforce. A minority-owned private company, ZT is nationally certified by the New York and New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council. At every level of our organization, from executive leadership to frontline team members, ZT embodies and celebrates diversity of background, belief, identity, and perspective.
ZT Systems recognizes our employees are our most valuable resource, as reflected in our core corporate value of People First. We are committed to providing a diverse, equitable, and safe workplace. At ZT, we strive for excellence and aim to go above and beyond compliance in our safety and environmental practices as we integrate EHS across all our operations.
ZT Systems embraces the ideal that environmental stewardship is essential to our success, and that ensuring sustainability is a responsibility shared by all. Our zGreen environmental initiatives address a wide range of areas, including carbon footprint and Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG) reduction, water management, pollution prevention, and resource conservation. And our racks of energy-efficient server and storage solutions are shipped in reusable packaging.
Recycling responsibly saves valuable reusable resources and diverts these items from landfills while reducing the amount of energy and resources necessary to extract and manufacture virgin materials. Each waste stream is identified to maximize the waste sent for upcycling or recycling while minimizing the amount sent to landfills.
At ZT Systems, we are committed to enabling the responsible recycling of our end-of-life products. To this end, ZT Systems India Private Limited has partnered with Karo Sambhav, an authorized, tech-enabled, environmentally beneficial, and socially responsible e-waste Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) to help make recycling a way of life.
What is “e-waste”?
Any discarded electronic appliances such as mobile phones, computers, laptops, printers, fax machines or even their parts, which have reached the end of their useful life are called “e-waste”.

Going beyond just recycling
At ZT Systems, we believe that our focus should not only be on responsible recycling, but also on generating awareness. Our PRO, Karo Sambhav, is creating awareness with bulk consumers of electronic waste through awareness events. We would also encourage our users to drop their e-waste at Karo Sambhav’s collection centers.
