At Zeffer we have approached sustainability through the lens of Kaitiakitanga – guardianship and protection. This traditional Māori world view resonates with us in its commitment to conserving, replenishing, and safeguarding for the future. We have an intrinsic connection to our land here in Hawke’s Bay – especially the orchards and apples we rely on to be able to craft our ciders.
As cider makers, we are fortunate that the cidermaking process is naturally sustainable and generates little waste, but we do have an impact and as we grow so too does our footprint. We are committed to minimising and offsetting this impact and are actively looking for ways we can have a positive effect on our environment, people, and community. Our goal is to tread lightly from orchard to (recycled) bottle.
We are on a journey of analysis and improvement and have set ourselves some lofty short, medium, and long-term sustainability goals. We are pleased to have achieved our first goal – our Zero Carbon Business Operation EKOS Certification for the 2020 financial year means that we are proudly New Zealand’s first Zero Carbon cidery.
