For Horizon Energy Group, sustainability means investing in the future – socially, environmentally and economically. In order to be a sustainable business, we must take responsibility for what we purchase, the way our products and services are used, and how things are disposed of.  Some of our sustainability initiatives include:

  • The introduction of both plug in hybrid and electrical vehicles into our fleet.
  • The installation, maintenance and servicing of a fast charging station in Whakatāne with an expansion of the EV highway through the Eastern Bay of Plenty in 2018.
  • Supporting community organisations, events and activities that nurture the growth and development of the people who live, work and play in our regions.
  • Alternative solar power and lighting solutions to commercial customers as an alternative.
  • Improving our customers’ power factor that in turn reduces energy costs.
  • Incorporating sustainable thinking in major projects through our extensive knowledge of Green Star Rated buildings.
  • Asset lifecycle management programmes that evaluate and analyse customer assets (new and existing) allowing informed decisions about whether to replace, rather than repair an asset nearing the end of its lifecycle.
  • Reducing long-term maintenance costs and energy usage through partnerships with customers to find the ideal plant, equipment or system that fits within budgetary requirements.
  • Offering controlled atmosphere storage solutions in which the concentrations of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen, as well as the temperature and humidity of storage room, are regulated to maximize the shelf life of fresh produce.
  • Acknowledging the importance of our existing lines network while investigating and fostering innovation and technology that will drive the future of our network.
  • Reclaiming refrigerant from decommissioned air-conditioning units and recycling the dismantled units for scrap.
  • Taking a holistic approach by harnessing the natural elements to create energy efficient solutions that uses solar shading and the cooling properties of air, earth and water that uses the infrastructure itself to generate energy.
  • Using recycled, non-corrosive metals in our roofing and cladding division.
  • Controlling project costs by using strictly monitored budgets to ensure all charges are questioned and controlled.
  • Utilise technology to host business meetings across multiple locations.
  • Offering Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) programmes as a proven method of covering risk on items of plant, equipment and systems that have a potentially large capital replacement cost - PPM not only reduces customer reactive spend but, more importantly, it reduces the amount of disruption to day-to-day business activities.
  • Using state of the art Service and Asset Management Systems (SAMS) designed around reducing travel and unproductive time for both Horizon Energy Group and our customers.
