IAG - Adaptation and Mitigation go hand in hand

3 May 2022 | Climate Change and Business Conference

In our latest look at businesses leading out on climate action we put the spotlight on adaptation and hear from Insurance Australia Group Limited (IAG) to find out more about why adaptation plays such a key role in the country’s response to climate change. As the largest general insurance company in Australia and New Zealand, IAG sees first-hand the devastating impact a changing climate can have on people and their communities. This is why a focus on climate change goes to the heart of their purpose to make the world a safer place, and why their team is dedicated to tackling the climate change challenge.

Countdown and CHEP collaborating in the circular economy

14 Apr 2022 | Countdown and CHEP

In 2020, Countdown released its ambitious 2025 Sustainability Plan. The plan features 14 goals and more than 40 commitments across ‘People’, ‘Planet’, and ‘Product’. These include commitments to zero food waste, science-based carbon emissions targets for Scopes 1-3, responsible stewardship of natural resources, and to “work with our trading partners, government and industry to influence packaging sustainability across the value chain.” Underpinning the plan are five guiding principles, that include ‘we apply circular thinking in everything we do’ and ‘we embrace the power of partnerships to create change’. By its very nature, Countdown cannot apply circular thinking in isolation. These principles have guided Countdown and CHEP in their work together to achieve major reductions in supply chain environmental impacts. This quiet revolution now sees more than 11 million reusable CHEP crates in circulation, transporting fresh produce from farms to Countdown stores across Aotearoa, and removing the equivalent in single use cardboard boxes from use.
