At Ryman Healthcare we know that caring for the environment is important to our residents and our team. They want to make sure we’re doing our absolute best for the generations to come.
Ryman is a Toitū ‘carbonreduce’ certified organisation in line with ISO 14064-1 – we’ve measured our organisation’s carbon footprint and have developed an emissions management and reduction plan. As a part of our Toitū certification, we’re audited each year on our carbon-emissions performance so that we can measure our progress against our emission-reduction targets. Ryman is serious about making progress, and committing to the Toitū ‘carbonreduce’ programme ensures that we mean business.
We are also part of Air New Zealand’s ‘FlyNeutral’ programme, which allows us to offset the carbon impact of our air travel and make a positive contribution to regional sustainability, and Ryman Healthcare is a member of the New Zealand Green Building Council.
Sustainability at Ryman operates under an overarching Sustainability Framework, which is aligned with key United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
We have also adopted a set of Principles of Sustainable Design, which reflect our desire to build the most energy-efficient and low carbon-impact buildings we can while still meeting the needs of our residents.
