Foodstuffs joins the Climate Leaders Coalition
Company to join other businesses on the mission to achieve the country’s zero carbon ambitions.
New World (Foodstuffs New Zealand) has recently joined the Climate Leaders Coalition, formally linking its sustainability ambitions to the Coalition’s mission to tackle climate change and help New Zealand transition to a low emissions economy through collective action.
On behalf of Foodstuffs NZ, Managing Director Steve Anderson signed the Coalition’s Climate Change statement which commits the organisation to take voluntary action towards a low emissions future.
“We have been working to reduce our emissions for many years, but I’m certain that as part of the Climate Leaders Coalition there will be more that we can learn and implement. There is also the tangible benefit of working together with like-minded businesses to reach a common goal of achieving the country’s Zero Carbon ambitions.
“We are confident that this initiative will resonate strongly with the aspirations of our suppliers, customers and the communities of which our stores are part. Surveys show 95% of New Zealanders say they are leading a more sustainable lifestyle, and as a retailer our role is to help them do this.”
