We are committed to reducing our emissions in line with climate science
As the only wool scouring company in New Zealand with a world-leading process, we are compelled to do our bit towards reducing the emissions from our activities and helping limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.
During 2022 we committed to reducing our scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 46% by 2030 from a 2019 base year which has been approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The SBTi is a partnership between several global, sustainability focussed NGOs and non-profit organisations who share the joint goal of mobilising the private sector to take action on climate change.
We are already well on the way to achieving our short-term targets with several projects on our emissions reduction underway.
New Zealand law requires that all farming products have to be able to be traced back to the farm of origin. Our comprehensive records allow us to follow all wool from the farm of origin though to export deliveries.
We are a member of the New Zealand National Farm Assurance Programme. NZFAP is an internationally recognised foundation for the meat and wool industry. It provides an independent and authentic production assurance standard for consumers. These standards include integrity, traceability, biosecurity, food safety, environmental sustainability and animal welfare.
