Our Sustainability Kaupapa
Our approach to operating sustainably is shaped by our purpose of unlocking the magic of technology to create an awesome Aotearoa.
We want to contribute to the ongoing success of Aotearoa. We take a long-term view of our corporate responsibility as a New Zealand business.
Sustainability at One NZ covers ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) and is guided by this whakataukī: Whatungarongaro te tangata, toitū te whenua (translation: as people disappear from sight, the land remains).
Our Sustainability Kaupapa provides a framework for our people and outlines how we approach operating in a sustainable way.

Environment - Greener Aotearoa
We’re supporting NZ’s transition to a low-carbon future. As a technology company, we’re focused on driving energy efficiency, reducing e-waste and enabling our customers to reduce their emissions by using our technology and services. We’re fostering kaitiakitanga and guardianship to protect our environment.
Social - Thriving Communities
We’re focused on enhancing connection to unlock an awesome Aotearoa for all. We’ll do this via safe and secure networks, offering resilient coverage, supporting NZ’s digitisation and driving digital equity. This includes championing philanthropy through Te Rourou, One Aotearoa Foundation and One Good Kiwi. By embracing manaakitanga, we’ll enable growth and wellbeing.
Governance - Trusted Partner
We’re committed to being Aotearoa’s most secure and resilient business. We prioritise health & safety and diversity & inclusion. We strive to act ethically in all customer, supplier, and business relationships. We partner with Māori through our Whārikihia strategy and ‘Honouring the principles of Te Tīriti o Waitangi’ policy. By extending kotahitanga, we’ll show unity to achieve collective outcomes.
Creating a greener Aotearoa
Reuse and recycle – we’re committed to reducing waste through reusing and recycling 95% of our network waste, recycling systems in our offices and retail stores and partnering with REMOBILE and Brightpoint to recycle and refurbish old mobile phones and devices.
