In May 2007 NES joined EnviroSmart programme. The programme was a council initiative focused on improving the environmental performance and resource efficiency of businesses throughout New Zealand. Since that time we committed to constant improvements. To decrease waste output where possible we created Environmental Management Program (EMP) where every year we set our goals and the ways we can recycle efficiently.
At NES we expect our staff and contractors to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: cardboard, copy paper, plastic, aluminium and glass bottles, cans, tins, empty aerosol cans, polystyrene, used ink cartridges & toners, batteries, old computer, monitors, printers and accessories, oil, scrap steel and wire off cuts, fluorescent tubes and lamps, plastic TPS cable and Migwire drums.
We encourage our staff to use electronic forms of communication and filing where possible to reduce consumption of paper.
We have effective procedures in place to deal with waste and circulate information to help with waste management.
We try to make waste management as simple as possible to maintain effectiveness.
In January 2014 we had our annual audit by Enviro-Mark. We kept our Diamond (highest) Level of accreditation. You can view PDF copy of it
