What or how does your business contribute to a more sustainable NZ?
At Morphum Environmental, we are focused on embedding sustainability into all aspects of our business practices: sustainability is fundamental to our company culture; it is inherent in our project work; and it is essential to the successful, day-to-day running of our business.
Sustainability isn’t just a buzz word at Morphum Environmental – it’s a way of life. In an employee survey conducted by Morphum Environmental, we found that one of the highest rated aspects by employees about our company was its strong sustainability values. Our team members regularly attend conferences and events focused around sustainability, and are active in sustainability networks and societies. Our directors and company are frequently recognised at awards ceremonies for their contribution to a sustainable future in New Zealand. Every one of our directors, environmental engineers, environmental consultants and business support professionals is dedicated to the promotion of sustainability and sustainable practices on a local, national and global scale. That’s why all of our projects are approached from the outset with sustainability in mind. Our point of difference is that we offer lasting, sustainable solutions that are secured into the future – instead of solutions which work just for now. Walking the talk around sustainability is vital to our success. Because it is our key point of difference, it is vital that we live by it in all aspects of our activities. We are carboNZero certified, we actively implement the initiatives outlined in our environmental management strategy and we employ leaders in sustainability to keep us on track.
Our focus on sustainability in the stormwater management field has been demonstrated through our use of water sensitive design in projects ranging from asset management though to infrastructure upgrades and stormwater treatment. Key to delivering on this focus is our ability to provide both hard and soft engineering solutions along with ecological restoration and effective community engagement. An example of this focus and multi-disciplinary approach in action is Morphum Environmental’s work on the Alexandra Stream enhancement project and the Roy Clements treeway. Both of these projects are award winning, and involved the integration of public infrastructure with stream restoration and enhancement. They were innovative projects that helped to achieve multiple community outcomes through the implementation of low impact design principles.
