Sustainability - our systems:


‘’We are committed to the everlasting journey of improvement, for us this forms our strategic plans for: Health, Safety and Sustainability, not just for Active Refrigeration, but New Zealand:.

Active Refrigeration is committed to Sustainability, this means keeping PEOPLE,  PLANET and PROFIT. We believe everyone has a right to return home safely every day as we always have. We also believe in forward-thinking, honest and ethical business, that's good for our customers and the long-term care for our beautiful environment.

Since Active Refrigeration won the Health and Safety Initiative of the year in 2017 - Deloitte Energy Excellence Awards where we demonstrated our sustainable approach to Health and Safety, we've expanded our ethos of other areas of our business. Active Refrigeration have held ISO14001 Environmental systems accreditation since 2017, among other externally verified standards and we aren't stopping there! We are pursuing innovative design and kiwi ingenuity, every day to reduce the impact of everyday life.

Our next goal is ISO integrated management systems (including the transition from AS/NZ 4801 to ISO 45001) that deliver transparent performance and value to our customers and our business.

Our ever-improving business systems still contain what you'd expect to keep people and the environment safe, minimise unforeseen events and respond to risks and opportunities in a competent manner, but we will also make the tools more accessible and place more emphasis on collaboration with our stakeholders.
