Asphalt in New Zealand

Sustainability is embedded into the way we work at Downer and means achieving good outcomes for our people, our communities, and the taiao (environment). We strive for excellence that will enable communities to thrive.

Our products and services impact millions of lives every day, and the sustainability of our operations is paramount – for our people, our partners, our shareholders, our customers, and their customers.

Across Aotearoa New Zealand, our Asphalt Production teams are committed to increasing environmental sustainability through innovation. This includes supplying materials with high proportions of recycled materials, making the best use of locally available resources, reducing transport impacts, and preserving virgin materials. In addition to research and development, sustainability tracking, and target setting, we continue to invest in energy reduction initiatives including increasing our capabilities to produce future lower-impact products.

Alongside innovation, Downer believes third-party verification is critical to provide transparent, standardised, and comparable information. This Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a robust, evidence-based, independently-verified, and standardised tool to measure and communicate the sustainability of our asphalt products.

Together with our independently-verified Life Cycle Assessment calculator, this EPD enables you to quantify environmental outcomes for Downer’s asphalt products and services. This supports informed purchasing decisions, transparent sustainability messaging, product quantification for green rating tools including the Infrastructure Sustainability Council’s rating scheme, and promotes industry and environmental recognition.

Downer is committed to protecting our environment and supporting our communities by striving for increased environmental and sustainability outcomes, utilising innovation to adapt to the challenges we face. As a leading integrated services provider in Australia and New Zealand, we are empowered to contribute toward your sustainability goals and we look forward to continuing our efforts with you, now and in the future.
