We are involved in working groups on environmental issues as often as we can, and have participated in government studies like the Rethinking plastics in New Zealand, our sustainability Manager Ally Hopwood has spoken at forums and is involved in the wider plastics industry through Plastics New Zealand to facilitate best environmental practices as well as offering our knowledge and support. Our Sustainability Manager Ally Chairs the Plastics New Zealand environment committee and sits on the National Exec of Plastic New Zealand.
