Reporting on our Sustainability Measures


Reporting on our Sustainability Measures

At Z, we take sustainability seriously. We reckon doing the right thing for our environment and our neighbourhoods is the right thing to do. We’re determined to have an active, leading and game-changing position in four key sustainability objectives by 2015. You can read more about them here.

We report our progress against these sustainability objectives every year. Our latest progress will be available in the Annual Report 2014 which we’ll share with you in May. You can check out our results for 2013 here

As a valued customer of Z, we’re interested in hearing what matters to you when we report on our company performance in the area of sustainability. Throughout our sustainability journey we’ve taken the time to listen to the questions and advice from those around us, and it’s important to us that we continue to do this.

One of the key outcomes that we want to achieve is to understand what you want us to report on. We’re committed to keeping New Zealand business moving and to help us do this, we want to hear from you. We want to know what matters to you when it comes to sustainability and Z’s journey.

We’re currently considering using the GRI reporting framework to standardise our sustainability reporting for inclusion in our annual report. If you aren’t familiar with GRI reporting, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an international not-for-profit organisation, which has pioneered and developed a comprehensive sustainability reporting framework that is widely used around the world.

The framework enables greater organisational transparency and accountability by measuring various aspects of an organisation using indicators that are comparable and can demonstrate change over time.

The GRI is used by the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants as their benchmark for assessing sustainability reports. GRI guidelines provide a great framework to report on your sustainability performance.
