Kiwi busi­ness gets greener: sur­vey

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

New Zealand busi­nesses are grad­u­ally get­ting greener, while tak­ing ten­ta­tive steps to­ward sus­tain­abil­ity, ac­cord­ing to a Uni­ver­sity of Auck­land sur­vey out on Wed­nes­day. The sur­vey found 53 per­cent of the 33 re­spon­dents— cho­sen be­cause they were al­ready mak­ing moves to im­prov­ing sus­tain­abil­ity— aimed to be­come sus­tain­abil­ity lead­ers in their sec­tors in the next three to five years. Busi­nesses said they were tar­get­ing projects that de­liv­ered clear pay­back, such as im­proved en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and re­duced waste, but they ex­pected to em­brace more am­bi­tious goals, such as re­duc­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pacts and car­bon emis­sions in the next three years.
