Our New Zealand farmers are already among the most efficient in the world, with one of the lowest on-farm carbon footprints in the world. But we’re not stopping there.

Our Sustainability Report shows the progress we’re making towards our environmental, social, and economic targets – while also recognising there is more work to be done.

People and culture involves caring for people to make a positive social impact, Nature is about achieving a healthy environment for farming and society, and Working together recognises that we can deliver more through collaboration and strong relationships.
