TransNet is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated business. Our business is based on providing quality products quickly to our many valued customers from our extensive stock holding. We pride ourselves on high quality customer service. Our R&D division designs game changing products for our customers, and where possible these products are produced here in NZ using Kiwi businesses.
We understand the importance of supporting other local New Zealand businesses and in turn creating local employment opportunities and sales revenue streams. Our staff are our family, and together we have taken on the challenge of sustainability and environmental responsibility. Our carbon neutral status was borne of this challenge. Our onsite solar micro grid generates more than 100% of the electricity we consume with the surplus being fed back into the NZ electricity grid.
Together we have reduced our landfill by 66% and increased recycling to include polystyrene. This has been supported by using innovative packaging materials for sustainable solutions.
Our whole team at TransNet would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
We're here to help you keep the power on, but there are ways to do that while also looking after our environment. Gaining ISO 14001 (Health, Safety, & Environment) and ISO 14064-1 (GHG Emission Management) certification in 2017 sparked a passion for us. We strived to keep improving and in 2019 our efforts were rewarded when we became Certified Carbon Neutral. Offsetting the remainder of our carbon emissions was something we investigated thoroughly, wanting to work within our industry and at the same time to help a community. We chose a hydroelectric power station project in a third world country to help, something pretty special that we are immensely proud to have contributed to.
We want to show that it's possible to minimise our impact without having to compromise our values. We're also assisting some of our customers on their own sustainability journey!
