Sustainability

NZP has always endeavoured to engage in sustainable business practices, recognizing that potentially, without intervention, demand will eventually exceed supply of eco-system resources. Interestingly, NZP itself was built on the concept of taking waste products from the meat industry and processing them into products for use in the health industry.

We recently participated in the Sustainable Business Practice programme, facilitated through Vision Manawatu and Otago Polytechnic, recognising the importance of working with other local businesses to improve sustainability within the region.

NZP works on a model of continual improvement, a key reason for the longevity of the business in an often demanding export sector.

Current focus is based around:

    • Environmental Protection
    • Waste Reduction
    • Green Chemistry
    • Strategic positioning for the longevity of NZP as a major employer in the region.
