Progress Towards a Sustainable New Zealand
The Sustainable Business Network (SBN) is aiming to transform New Zealand to a model sustainable nation by leading positive change in four transformation areas: Renewables, Community, Mega efficiency and Restorative. Within each of these transformation areas they have identified one core focus which is an area of critical importance to New Zealand in which they want to use the strength and diversity of their Network to help shift systems onto a more sustainable path.
Just some of the highlights of 2015
A project which created a strong business case for delivering an Auckland-wide car sharing and electric vehicle scheme. Members in the Bay of Plenty held an event to progress the electric vehicle opportunity there.
A workshop was held with 10 businesses committed to addressing socio-economic issues in Mangere-Otahuhu. Four viable programmes came out of it that will be prototyping in 2016.
Facilitating knowledge sharing among a host of diverse circular economy practitioners at a ‘facilitating the circular economy’ workshop organised by SBN.
Formed the National Good Food Network, New Zealand’s first training programme for organisations taking a food systems approach to improving their regional food systems.
The Sustainable Business Network is shaping the future through better business. As the largest organisation of businesses dedicated to sustainability in New Zealand, the SBN connects you with other innovators, enabling you to collaborate on solutions.
We look forward to seeing what 2016 brings.
