Carbon Footprint

It is stated policy of the NNZ Group to reduce, its environmental impact, where practicable. It is the overall strategy of our Group to improve both operational performance and a reduction in potentially harmful emissions to land, water and air. NNZ’s ultimate aim is a carbon balance as low as possible for our company to be achieved as soon as possible but at least before 2015, or even before, where practical.

To achieve this, NNZ will:

  • Comply with all current energy legislation, seeking to meet or compensate legislative targets, 
  • Minimise waste, promote recycling, and the use of recycled products to help reduce the burden of landfill, and therefore methane generation, 
  • Continue to promote and design energy efficient and therefore carbon reducing packaging materials and concepts on behalf of our partners, 
  • Promote environmental awareness and responsibility amongst our own employees, 
  • Will seek where practicable to continuously improve NNZ’s environmental performance, 
  • Start preparation/investigation of using energy efficient and therefore carbon reducing installations and equipment throughout the whole Group, 
  • Evaluate the potential benefits of home-working where practical, 
  • Evaluate the potential benefits of carbon off-setting, such as tree planting and the use of solar energy,

 Actions developed to date include:

  • Development of sustainable packaging concepts (since 1998), 
  • Sustainable/Environmental friendly Purchasing Policy, 
  • Organize the transport department to be as efficient as possible, 
  • Procedure to use fuel efficient vehicles, 

This policy clearly identifies the responsibilities and procedures for achieving the Group’s stated objectives in all aspects of its activities leading to improved environmental performance, including reductions in both CO2, and methane emissions.
