Sustainability at Genesis

Genesis’ Sustainable Development Goals

We’ve chosen to align our capabilities with five of the 17 goals developed by the United Nations to address global challenges including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. Our chosen five are:

Affordable and clean energy

Managing your energy

We've developed Energy IQ to put the control in our customers’ hands. They can forecast and compare their energy use, and manage their account, anywhere 24/7.

Carbon emission reduction

Our Future-gen programme is to find opportunities to reduce emissions while still providing reliable and affordable electricity.

Decent work and economic growth

Sustainable financial performance

At Genesis, we look for sustainable investments to build an economy which is resilient in the face of climate-related uncertainties.

Creating people opportunities

Our initiatives create job opportunities from fixed term to full time employment along with internships that provide meaningful job experience.

Reducing inequalities

Sustainable pay

We’re proud to have earned the YWCA’s GenderTick™ and be a certified Living Wage employer.

Future innovators

Genesis sponsors the School-gen Trust - a charity that helps Kiwi kids get access to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) equipment. This helps them build the skills they need to meet the challenges of the future.

Climate action

Carbon emission reduction

Our Future-gen programme is to find opportunities to reduce emissions while still providing reliable and affordable electricity.

Setting environmental targets

We’ve worked with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to help maximise and measure the positive impact of the changes we will make.

A task force for change

Genesis uses the recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) to report risks we face by climate change.

Partnerships for the goals

Duck tales

We work with DOC to secure the future of one of our most endangered native birds, the whio.

Energising minds

Genesis School-gen inspires Kiwi kids to engage with STEM through learning about sustainability and energy.

Turbines are go

The Waipipi Wind Farm in South Taranaki has started generating 100% renewable, zero-emissions electricity to the national grid.
