You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

As leaders of change we are committed to reducing our own carbon footprint, while helping our customers reduce their emissions and bring New Zealand closer to a net zero future.
As part of the Energy Industry we are planning and implementing our own emission reduction goals to help New Zealand reach the 2050 net zero target. Our first step towards electrifying our fleet was the purchase of a lithium battery forklift. The HANGCHA new energy forklift has a dedicated rapid charging station in our warehouse and is energy efficient with low maintenance and long service life.
Our emissions reduction target plan includes helping our customers reach their own sustainability goals through efficient and environmentally friendly products and partnering with manufacturers who are working towards the global net zero target.
Manufacturers continue to reduce and minimise the environmental impact their products have during final use and helping customers increase efficiency and sustainability.

Our cloud-based CRM system has allowed us to drastically reduce our reliance on paper, especially for our technicians who can access all forms, manuals, timesheets, invoices and ordering online while in the field. All our technicians are equipped with a mobile phone and tablet pre-loaded with our secure CRM application and share drive. This system also allows our schedulers to allocate work to the field team in real time reducing travel times and fuel consumption.
