Our Business

We believe this area reflects the essential and enduring nature of the services we provide and the importance of these to our customers and the community. If our business is not operated sustainably now, it will have a wide-reaching impact, environmentally, socially and financially for New Zealand in the future.

We are focusing on three specific programmes, ensuring essential compliance, reducing carbon through electric vehicles and identifying solutions to problem waste streams. We believe these projects will contribute significantly to the long-term sustainability of our business.
