Supporting our communities

Being active in the communities where we live and work is important for our business and our people.

We’re proud to help grow our communities and connect with our indigenous culture through a range of initiatives and partnerships, including Community Post, Maori Language Week and Te Matatini National Kapa Haka Festival. Read more about our intiatives and partnerships.

Volunteering is another way we try to make a difference. Each year our people get a day’s paid volunteer leave to offer their time and energy in their community – from preparing frozen meals, sewing school bags and gardening at Epuni School, to clearing drains below the walking tracks on Kapiti Island Nature Reserve. Hundreds of our people are volunteering their time and effort every year – we’re working to get that number (9% in 2015) to 15% by 2017.
