Leading the sustainability conversation

Our New Zealand team enhanced its position as sustainability thought leaders with a series of special forums in September.

These forums were a great chance to share sustainability insights and information with our customers, while also showcasing some of our industry-leading sustainability initiatives. The series kicked off in Wellington and Tauranga, before heading to Christchurch and Dunedin on the South Island.

It was a great example of how Downer is leading the sustainability conversation, with our speakers discussing everything from digital engineering, asset management and low carbon roads through to sustainable communities.

The sustainability series put an exclamation mark on what has been a big 2019 for New Zealand in the sustainability space.

In 2019, we celebrated our one-year anniversary as part of the Climate Leaders’ Coalition, formed a sustainability governance group, were the first in the country to deliver a project under the ISCA sustainability framework and rating system on the City Rail Link, delivered the first large scale trial of Plas Mix in New Plymouth… and the list goes on!

This project demonstrates Downer’s contribution to achieve the following Sustainable Development Goals:
