Firstgas – a member of the Climate Leaders Coalition.
As a member of the Climate Leaders Coalition of New Zealand, Firstgas is on a mission to reduce emissions in Aotearoa. We are one of several organisations around the country who have committed to taking voluntary action on climate change.
Each year Firstgas Group measures and publicly report our greenhouse gas emissions to ensure we are aligning with our emissions reduction targets. Measuring and understanding our emissions is important to understand not only what they are, but also which parts of our business provide the biggest contribution. This helps us to focus our attention on where we can make the biggest difference.
