Working with our suppliers

At Z, we reckon sustainability matters and we’re committed to acting in a way that benefits the future of the communities we operate in and the planet that carries us all, while at the same time sustaining a long term future for our business.

We want to engage with suppliers who share these commitments. So, in 2015 we introduced our first Supplier Code of Conduct which covers the things that we believe matter to New Zealand:

  • Ethical business
  • People and community
  • Safety and wellbeing
  • Environmental sustainability

We updated this in 2020 to reflect the changing social, economic and environmental landscape we all operate in. We want to strengthen existing partnerships and invite new collaborations to ensure we operate in a fair, transparent and sustainable manner for the good of all New Zealand.

Hear Z's Sustainability Manager Gerri and Procurement Manager Simon talk about what's new and how it works over on our YouTube channel.
