Air New Zealand

Fonterra

“New Zealand has an enviable history of taking a leadership position when it comes to important global issues. Fonterra supports a combined and collaborative approach to helping New Zealand achieve its Paris Climate agreement, while growing productivity and output at the same time.

"In line with that, we have set a target of net zero emissions for our global operations by 2050, with a 30% reduction by 2030." Read more

IAG

"At IAG, our purpose is to make the world a safer place, and that’s why I’ve signed the Climate Leadership Statement along with 49 other CEOs.

"Climate change poses a real threat to our way of life, such as increasingly strong storms, floods and global warming, with New Zealand particularly impacted by sea level rise." Read more

KiwiRail

"We’ve signed up to the CEO Climate Leadership Statement because we want to continue growing New Zealand’s economy in a sustainable way.

Ngāi Tahu Holdings

"We know we cannot do this alone. But we are committed to this journey as we want to ensure we create an Aotearoa that future generations can be proud of. Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri ā muri ake nei – for us and our children after us." Read more

NZ Post

“NZ Post is here for the long run. We’re committed to our people and New Zealand communities and our sustainability goals are just another way of showing this.”

"New Zealand Post is part of the national landscape, integral to the Kiwi way of life for nearly 180 years. We're evolving and developing our business to meet the changing needs of our customers." Read more

Ports of Auckland

"Climate change is the issue of our time, and how we meet this challenge will define us.

"We can’t expect ‘The Government’ to solve the problem for us, it’s too big for that and collectively we’re all responsible for the mess we’re in. So we all have to roll our sleeves up, get stuck in and fix this." Read more

Spark

“As a leading home-grown digital services company, Spark sees huge opportunities for using technology to help us address climate change.

"I’m convinced some of the best solutions to a zero carbon future have probably not been thought of yet. NZ has shown time and time again we can do amazing things and lead the world and we can do the same when it comes to creating a more sustainable, carbon neutral future.” Read more

Toyota

“As the brand which has nearly a quarter of all vehicles on New Zealand’s roads Toyota takes its responsibilities to customers and the environment very seriously.

With transport emissions accounting for nearly 20 per cent of all carbon output, we have a large influence on how New Zealand will progress to a zero-carbon economy." Read more

Vector

“We see sustainability as a key part of the new energy future that we are pioneering.

"That’s why we joined other leading global businesses in making a clear commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This is not the just "the right thing to do". From a business perspective, it's a way of minimising the future impacts of climate change which will make our jobs a lot harder, add enormous cost and disrupt the power we all depend on.” Read more

The Warehouse Group

“The Warehouse Group has always recognised that the choices that we make today affect our future environment.

"That’s why we were a founding member of the NZ Sustainable Business Council and we have worked actively with the Council since 1999. At the heart of our environmental leadership is a deep commitment to operating a sustainable business." Read more

Westpac

“When businesses unite around a central goal, it creates real momentum to change. One of the things that binds all of our organisations together is a love for our country and a desire to make it a great place to live - for us and for future generations.

"By working together on a future that is focussed on low emissions, and sustainable innovation and practices, we can all play our part towards improving the country’s prosperity and to continuing to make it a desirable place to live.” Read more

Z Energy

“I am committed to our work on bringing digital, innovation, and productivity together to create a great customer experience while we contribute to the big things New Zealand needs to deal with, like climate change.” Read more
