Sustainability Strategy 

Vision Systems is a New Zealand owned and operated company specialising in electronic security, electrical installation, and data cabling, from planning to installation to ongoing servicing and maintenance throughout New Zealand. We are raising the industry standard, delivering exceptional customer service and have an energetic, engaged and experienced team living our business why of “Simply Making Lives Better”.

One of our company values is to be ‘1% better each day’. This has driven us to look into how we can promote sustainable development and play our part in moving from a traditional linear system to one that is circular, regenerative and inclusive. As part of this, we have engaged Go Well Consulting to develop this sustainability strategy, which sets out our goals for the next three years and breaks those goals down into corresponding targets across the years.

Our Sustainability Committee:

– Tristan Bailey             – Pip Delany-Lott             – Lou Cooper             – Terry Phillips

– Frazer Walters          – Tracey Burgess                – Will Lynton            – GeorgiaThompson

Eco Recycling Day

Eco Recycling Day
Frazer, Terry and Lou went to see the process at Reclaim,  who collect our cardboard recycling. But there’s all sorts of recycling, paper, cardboard, plastic and some food waste. A lot is shipped offshore, but it’s still amazing to think how much is diverted from landfills!

As a trial, we have deployed two electric scooters in the Chch office, which will give the team a mode of transport to meetings (or to get lunch). We have already had a great uptake in use this week! If all goes well, we will deploy across all regions in 2024!
