At Z we stand for making a positive difference where we live and operate in New Zealand. Some call this corporate social responsibility, but at Z we simply call it community.
It’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly. When you’re part of a community, you look out for it. It’s the Kiwi way, and we’re a Kiwi company. Besides, without community, we simply wouldn’t be here.
Here’s what we choose to focus on:
From Good in the Hood to rolling out defibrillators across every Z site across the country, to our annual scholarship programme, check out what we've been working on through our community stand below!
We've installed defibrillators at Z sites across NZ which are available to anyone in the community to use. About 70 percent of sites are open 24/7 & can be taken off-site if needed.
This year we made the dream of studying a reality for 7 inspiring kiwis. The scholarship options reflect our commitment to leadership, health and safety excellence & great service.
Our skilled volunteering programme gives our people time to volunteer for the benefit of an organisation they want to help — it's all about sharing skills that the community needs.
The effort to save the humble honey bee is getting a boost in Wellington, with 35 new beehives being delivered around the region this month – ten of which have been funded by Z.
The team from Z Awakeri service station, in Whakatane, recently spent a volunteer day supporting local community initiative, The Clothing Project.
A good community can’t exist without a good environment, so Z is extending Good in the Hood funding to groups working hard to keep our neighbourhoods clean, green and beautiful.
Z first ever scholarship recipients are graduating today with bachelor degrees, as Z works to help front-line staff have options for careers beyond the forecourt.
Good in the Hood applications open for the month of February. To apply online, head here.
We’re committed to supporting the things that matter locally and to making a positive contribution right across New Zealand. We do this through our Good in the Hood programme. Every year we give away more than $1 million to community projects all over the country. Our local Z stations have some extra funding set aside to support local community initiatives and events throughout the year too. You can find your local Z site using the store locator and get in touch to see if they’re able to support you.
