Environmental Sustainability

We’re on a journey to reduce our impact to the environment. To help us achieve this, we have a range of initiatives which include:

  • Participation in Carbon Neutral Government Programme (CNGP)
  • Organisation wide Environmental Sustainability Policy
  • Offsetting air travel carbon with credits
  • Holding meetings online instead of in-person where practical to reduce associated travel
  • Incremental replacement of fleet with hybrid and electric vehicles
  • Established an internal Sustainability Steering Committee
  • Members of the Sustainable Business Network
  • Supplier Sustainability Code of Conduct policy
  • Waste Reduction Audits
  • Toitū carbonreduce certification
