Ensuring we are reducing our environmental impact is an ongoing job for not only businesses, but individuals all over New Zealand.

However, the issues surrounding the environment have not gone anywhere and significant action is needed to have a positive impact. As workplaces make their way back to some form of normality, more environmentally based projects and initiatives can get underway.
According to the Ministry for the Environment:
