A better New Zealand. A better planet. Browse what we’re doing as part of our commitment to sustainability, minimising our environmental footprint and helping our communities.


Environmental initiatives we’re undertaking

Our Sustainable Development Goals create a framework for change.

We recognise our core business relies on transportation, and as an emissions-intense organisation, we plan to continuously do better.

Environmental Approach

“Working with partners who align with our values and have a commitment to sustainability is important to us. The emissions reporting we receive each month contributes to our greater reporting, giving us a clearer picture of our carbon footprint.”

Helping our communities

Reducing Plastics


Reducing fossil-based virgin plastic use by 70%

We’re committed to reducing the amount of virgin plastics we use and ensuring the rest are either reusable, recyclable or upcycled.

To back that commitment up, we set ourselves a target to reduce fossil-based virgin plastic use by more than 70% by 2023.
