As a large national concrete supplier, Allied Concrete can lead and influence change. We are also a part of HWR, a privately owned principally transport-related group who view the responsibility to lead sustainable practices as a privileged opportunity.
Allied Concrete has been in concrete production for over 40 years in New Zealand. Our sustainability journey encompasses initiatives across the three pillars of the UN sustainable practice definition - Economic, Social and Environmental practice. With increasingly competitive markets, we recognise the commitment our customers are making for a sustainable future, and we work hard to understand and support their essential goals.
Allied Concrete remain incredibly proud to have successfully attained Australasia's first EPD. Our Environmental Product Declaration pre-dated the EPD scheme in New Zealand. Alongside many other environmental initiatives, this large piece of work was a commitment to being guided by objectively measurable practices and is a testament to our transparency. We have used EPD data to guide our resourcing, energy choices, waste and production practices.
Leading into our last measured year of production, we have proudly cut our CO² emissions by over 20%. There is no other ready mix concrete company in Australasia who can make and verify a claim like this.
With a local geographical spread across more than 50 locations in New Zealand, Allied Concrete recognise our wide-reaching social commitment to urban and rural New Zealand. We employ over 500 people from a diverse range of nationalities, backgrounds and cultures.
As an accredited employer with Immigration New Zealand, we currently support over 50 staff in 'Work to Residence' roles. We are proud of our recent launch; HEART- our wellbeing platform that is available as a tool for all staff and their families.
