Z Energy

In 2010, New Zealand company Infratil Limited and the Guardians of New Zealand Superannuation got together and bought a global company's New Zealand downstream fuel business.

Back then, at the beginning of our journey, sustainability played as much of a key role inside Z as it does today. And now, we're a publicly listed company on the Australian and New Zealand stock exchanges with over 8,000 shareholders.

So, why do we do what we do around sustainability? Frankly because we reckon it matters.

To us here at Z, sustainability means acting in a way that benefits the future of the neighbourhoods we operate in and the planet we live on. We think it's good for business, good value and good sense.

It goes without saying that we're committed to doing the right thing by New Zealand. We're a transport energy company, not an oil company – and that means we're not wedded to fossil fuels. In fact, we reckon we're in a unique position to move from being part of the problem to being at the heart of the solution.

To do that, we've made a commitment to shifting the dial in the areas where it matters most. That means using less and wasting less in our own business, reducing the carbon intensity of our customers, reducing New Zealand's reliance on fossil fuels, and supporting New Zealand businesses and communities.

We've also made a commitment to help our customers reduce carbon emissions from the fuels we sell by making biodiesel available to New Zealanders. Our biodiesel production plant in Wiri, Auckland, is the result of more than four years of careful planning and design, enabling us to bring a high quality biodiesel, Z Bio D, to New Zealand.
