OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
As a responsible business organisation, we are committed to leading by example as we go on our own sustainability journey and helping members to build their own sustainability pathways. Orion is our proud partner for sustainability, and we are thrilled to share our journey with you.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
We are committed to achieving Carbon Zero certification by FY23. Sustainability is not achieved overnight but via taking action, one step at a time. We are taking those steps, and in doing so, showing how the transition to sustainability can be achieved. Our first steps have included:
- Over the last two years we have partnered with Orion to inspire and educate Canterbury businesses on what sustainability means to them and how to begin navigating the journey of carbon reduction through a series seminars and events. We have run two recent webinars on the impact of climate change on the Canterbury region with the Climate Change Commission and with Kantar on both sustainability and Kiwi attitudes towards sustainability.
- Determining our footprint.
Next, we are working with business partners such as Deta to develop an action plan that will help us achieve Carbon Zero. Watch this space for our journey!
