Say no to business as usual

Businesses of every size can reap the benefits of doing more, with less harmful energy.

Say no to business as usual

Businesses had to find new ways of working during the pandemic, but our research shows instead of going back to the “old normal”, many of them are sticking with the changes they made.

We're giving businesses the tools they need to take the adaptability and innovation they’ve shown in the face of a huge health challenge, and do exactly the same for our greatest environmental challenge.

More coal boiler conversions co-funded

Open Country Dairy will receive co-investment from the $69m Government Investment in Decarbonising Industry (GIDI) Fund to convert two of its coal boilers to use wood pellets and wood chips at its Waharoa site in the Waikato.

This follows an announcement by Minister of Energy and Resources Dr Megan Woods, in April, of the initial 14 GIDI projects.

Altogether, the 16 projects will deliver 3.8 million tonnes CO2e emissions reductions over their lifetimes – the equivalent of taking 62,500 cars off the road.

 

The tool smaller businesses need to tackle their carbon footprint

The new Climate Action Toolbox is a free, easy-to-use online tool that shows you how to reduce your business emissions.

The toolbox is a simple self-assessment tool to help reduce the carbon footprint of any business. It focuses on five key areas – transport (moving people and goods), office operations, site operations and equipment, and the design and making of products.
