Naylor Love has made a genuine and profound commitment to be the leader in sustainable construction practices and the champion of sustainable construction products in New Zealand.
Sustainability in business has three key aspects: commercial, social and environmental. We’ve spent the past couple of years focusing on commercial sustainability in the challenging New Zealand construction sector by developing our risk management processes and social sustainability by reinforcing our health, safety, training and wellbeing programmes. We now have a central role in leading national industry change in both areas through Construction Health and Safety New Zealand (CHASNZ), the Vertical Construction Leaders Group (VCLG) and MATES in Construction NZ.
In the third key aspect, environmental sustainability, Naylor Love is recognised as a leader in engineered timber construction and as a champion of this exciting renewable product. We are also members of the Climate Leaders Coalition, signing the 2019 pledge and committing to reducing our carbon footprint in line with the aim of keeping global warming to less than 1.5 degrees. To achieve this, we will reduce our emissions 25% by 2025 from a base year footprint of 1932 tCO2e, and 46% by 2030.
Here’s our progress to date:
