We aspire to be a zero-waste organisation by 2025 which means achieving a minimum 90% diversion of generated operational waste to landfill.
In 2020 we diverted 76% of our operational waste.
We're committed to operating in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way, and making recycling and waste reduction easier and more accessible for Kiwis. We believe that circularity is integral to a sustainable business and economy.
We have expanded the network of stores offering the Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme to 28 across the country. Close to 30 tonnes has been collected and diverted from landfill in the past year.
Technology and innovation and are being harnessed in collaboration with industry partners to roll out first to market post-consumer waste initiatives across our brands enabling consumers to safely and responsibly dispose of e-waste and products not recyclable via kerbside collection. These programmes provide circular solutions to waste reduction and landfill pile up.
