We’re committed to delivering land transport in a resource-efficient manner, which helps minimise environmental impacts, contributes to reducing carbon emissions and has the potential to cut costs.
We define resource efficiency as achieving the best possible output for the least volume of materials and energy consumed during the construction, operation and maintenance of land transport systems, while providing relevant levels of service for safety, speed, environment and amenity.
We have developed a resource efficiency strategy, Te Hiringa o Te Taiao | Our Resource Efficiency Strategy, and supporting Resource Efficiency Policy for Infrastructure Delivery and Maintenance to deliver on our commitment to use resources sustainably with minimal environmental impact.

Resource Efficiency Policy for Infrastructure Delivery and Maintenance
The Resource Efficiency Policy is a requirement for all new Waka Kotahi infrastructure delivery projects and maintenance contracts.
We use the ISC sustainability rating scheme for our large infrastructure projects to drive improved environmental and sustainability outcomes during the planning, design and construction of infrastructure assets.
All infrastructure projects, regardless of whether they are undertaking ISC, will be required to implement the Resource Efficiency Policy.
