World first certification for Wellington Zoo great news

The announcement by Wellington Zoo that it is the first zoo in the world to achieve carboNZero certification is great news, Standards New Zealand Chief Executive Debbie Chin said today.

‘Achieving certification to an international standard is an achievement to be proud of and I would like to offer my congratulations to everyone at Wellington Zoo who has worked towards this worthwhile goal.

‘The Standard – ISO 14064-1:2006 – is one of the ISO 14000 Environmental Management series of Standards. This set of Standards will help any company or organisation that is looking to identify and control their environmental impact, and improve their environmental performance.

‘Another world first is a New Zealand business that we have talked to as part of a series of case studies to demonstrate the benefits of Standards to business. J. Friend and Co. NZ Artisan’s honey is the first honey in the world to achieve carboNZero certification.’

Debbie Chin said that environmental sustainability was becoming more and more important to the public.

‘Companies tell us being carbon zero certified is important to their customers. Many people care about who produces a product and how it’s produced. For those people, if a company is causing damage to the environment, they won’t buy the product.’
