The emissions that we create from our own activity fall into the categories of power, travel, paper and waste.
We have committed to reduce our emissions by at least 30% from our 2018 financial year (July 2017-June 2018) by 2022 and we'll do this by achieving the following reductions:
Over the past year we’ve reduced our carbon in these four areas by a total of 17.5%. We’ve done this by:
Changed our quick deposit bags from plastic to paper envelopes, taking around 80,000 single use plastic bags out of circulation.
Moved all of our envelopes to be fully paper based.
We're changing our receipt thermal roll to BPA free products with the inner core made from recycled milk bottles.
We measure our emissions against our 2018 Financial Year, as that was the first year that Kiwibank was separated from NZ Post
