Our goal is to operate our business sustainably, leaving a minimising our environmental footprint and, through innovation, transition to lower-emission alternative fuel solutions for future Kiwi generations.

Transitioning to a low-emissions future
  • We’re taking a leadership role in the development of future fuel solutions for NZ Inc - including the development of New Zealand’s first green hydrogen refueling network for heavy transport, co-located on new and existing Waitomo Fuel Stops, in partnership with Hiringa Energy.
  • EV charging stations will also be added at all our new highway Fuel Stops.
  • We're working on measuring our emissions and will be setting science-based targets to do our bit to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. We're implementing initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint too.
  • Through investment in new technology, innovation and knowledge gained from our own operations, we’re working towards a future where we can assist our customers and suppliers to better manage their own emissions from fuel efficiency, fleet optimisation and carbon trading.
Optimising our fleet
  • We’re actively taking steps within our fleet to reduce our emissions from transportation, including transitioning our bulk and mini-tanker fleet to new Euro 6 DAF trucks. 10% of our fleet are Euro 6 and 83% Euro 5.
  • The move to Euro 6 trucks will result in a 7% reduction in fuel consumption, a 77% reduction in NOx (nitrogen oxide / smoke) and a 66% reduction in particulate matter (soot).
  • Our fleet of vehicles (heavy and light) are fitted with EROAD monitoring to improve our driving efficiency.
  • A project to digitise our fleet’s routes is currently underway - this is the foundation step that will enable fleet optimisation - reducing our KM’s travelled to deliver fuel to our customers.

Innovative Fuel Stop design and development
  • Most of our Fuel Stops are fitted with automatic tank gauging, with world class wet stock management capabilities and alerts.
  • We’ve invested in innovative vapour recovery technology in our tankers and Fuel Stop pumps to reduce our carbon footprint. The system - not widely used in New Zealand - collects the petrol vapour that would otherwise be omitted into the atmosphere when refueling.
  • Our new sites include features like double-walled fibreglass tanks (instead of plastic-wrapped steel) to provide extra room for access and environmental monitoring, environmentally friendly interceptors, longer-life LED lights, rain gardens and native planting around the perimeters.
  • GoClear - an exhaust system additive and scrubbing agent that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions for diesel vehicles is available at many of our sites. GoClear is manufactured at New Zealand’s only ammonia-urea manufacturing plant located in Kapuni, Taranaki, negating the associated environmental footprint that comes with imported products.
