Let's Talk

Our Values

Independence and professionalism

It is important to us that our independence and professionalism is well recognised and respected. To this end all data and information we handle is treated with the highest level of integrity so that you can have confidence and trust in the work we carry out for you.

A pleasure to work with

It is important to us that our clients find us approachable and accessible, that we look after their best interests, and are able to keep often complex issues simple and practical. We use our experience and expertise to add measurable value to our client's business.

Environmental stewardship

We all have a deep respect for our natural environment and we actively care for the land, air and water in activities in and out of work. In business we have been monitoring our GHG emissions since 2008. We have Climate Positive Business Operations certification with EKOS. This means we offset 120% of our carbon footprint each year. The credits we purchase come from the Kānuka Hill - Uruwhenua Native Regeneration Project. You can read more about this project here.
