Ko te kaupapa o te whakahaere he tiaki i tō tātau taiao ātaahua mā te whakahaere toitū i ā tātau rawa.

As an organisation, our purpose is to safeguard our beautiful environment through the sustainable management of our resources.

The key projects in this programme area reflect a continuation of our efforts to ensure protecting the environment is embedded into our company, including reducing our carbon footprint and engaging with our staff and suppliers to support them protecting the environment and reducing their greenhouse gas emissions, along with a focus on regenerative plantings were possible.
