About us

Sustainability

We are committed to growing and developing our business in sustainable ways.

We seek knowledge and understanding of how our operations affect the environment and strive to minimise our environmental impact.

What We Are doing

Ecology

We aim to protect and enhance ecology at our sites with over 1.5km of stream restoration and riparian planting being undertaken.

Tree planting

In 2018 we planted over 10ha of native bush.

In the coming planting season, we will be planting another 19,244 plants for the restoration and protection of:

  • 4.2ha wetland
  • 1.3ha wet pasture
  • 1.7 ha terrestrial vegetation

By the end of this project, we will have planted 120,000 plants over an area of 26ha which is the approximate size of 44 football fields.

Heritage

Our sites are subject to archaeological survey. We have 5 historic features on our land. Of greatest significance is a Pa site, and other features include pits and terraces. We have taken steps to protect our historic features, including the covenanting of the Pa site and securing the historic areas with fencing. Through consultation with iwi, we’ve also provided access to the Pa site.

Emissions

We manage our discharges to air, land and water are managed to the highest possible standard and follow industry best practice.

Waste

We are committed to waste reduction and recycling where practicable. We use recycled products where possible, such as crushed concrete to replace aggregates.

Landscape

We apply our expertise daily to improve the value and usability of our clients’ land.
