As a company, Treescape actively seek out and implement environmentally friendly practices and take action to achieve our environmental targets. We encourage action at all levels of the organisation, and are committed to providing complete and appropriate environmental information to all staff.
Treescape are constantly improving our overall environmental awareness at all levels of the organisation. Engagement of employees in this programme is achieved through relevant training and activities, and our ISO14001 and Enviro-Mark Certifications are a live example of our continued commitment.
While an element of environmental protection is about compliance with laws and regulations, we have also established our own environmental targets and measures, with continuous improvement as the ultimate goal.
Some of our environmental initiatives include:
- Development of the "Greenways Project" (a series of native planting trials) for the state owned enterprise Ontrack.
- Building collaborative relationships with other organisations such as the NZ Plant Conservation Network and the Native Forest Restoration Trust.
- The "Canopy Project" involved the management and restoration of 5700 hectares of regenerating indigenous forest reserves
Protecting the environment is of upmost importance, and is featured in our overall company objectives. We are mindful of the (actual and potential) environmental impact of our operations, and take appropriate measures to minimise this. Protection of the environment will never be neglected in the interest of productivity. In selecting our suppliers and contractors, we insist on sufficient consideration of environmental responsibilities.
We endeavour to use raw materials and energy economically. On all Treescape sites, we have measures in place so as to avoid the harmful contamination of the ground. We strive to reduce wastage, to use recyclable materials in an appropriate way, and to dispose of non-recyclable scrap in agreement with existing regulations.
Treescape take care to use techniques to lower our emissions. We service our machinery regularly and utilise fuel efficient operating procedures. In order to protect the hearing of both employees and the public, we seek to minimise noise emissions from plant and machinery and carry out regular hearing checks on all staff.
