Goodman New Zealand is pleased to announce that it is now a Toitū carbon zero certified organisation
Tracking its greenhouse gas emissions since 2009, Goodman has worked with Toitū over the last two years, developing the framework to effectively manage and reduce emissions.
John Dakin, CEO of Goodman (NZ) Limited, said, “We are now proudly carbon neutral. Certification from Toitū reflects the priority placed on reducing our environmental footprint and the need for positive action to help mitigate the impacts of climate change. We’ve set targets for the future and are actively working to minimise emissions from our property portfolio and operational activities. It’s making us a more sustainable business and delivering better outcomes for all our stakeholders.”
The accreditation provides assurance that all emissions have been measured in accordance with ISO 14064-1:2006 and that unavoidable emissions have been offset with the purchase of New Zealand sourced and recognised carbon credits.
The certification encompasses Goodman Property Trust, Goodman (NZ) Limited and Goodman Property Services (NZ) Limited. Toitū's carbonzero certification is a New Zealand based internationally recognised programme. The programme requirements meet and exceed international standards and best practice, providing partners with assurance that its greenhouse gas emissions claims are credible and robust.
