BRANZ is proud of its Diamond Certification to the Enviro-Mark environmental programme administered by Landcare Research and our on-going aspiration is to continue improving our environmental performance. In 2017, BRANZ was recognised amongst 10 New Zealand organisations as the best of the best for its Outstanding Performance in Environmental Management. The award recognises businesses that have made a significant difference through their environmental management systems.
We received our Diamond Certification in November 2009, and at that time, only five other businesses in New Zealand held Diamond certification. There are now 40 businesses with Diamond Certification. There are now more than 20 businesses with Diamond Certification.
This certification is equivalent to achieving ISO 14001 - the international environmental standard for good environmental management.
