Westpac Rotorua Business Awards 2020
The Westpac Rotorua Business Awards are delivered annually by Rotorua Business Chamber. The high-profile awards celebrate innovation and creativity in the business sector and have been a highlight of Rotorua’s business calendar for over 20 years. As well as offering recognition for organisations, the awards provide the opportunity to benchmark and gain expert advice on how companies can continue to prosper.
Alsco Rotorua was the 2020 Finalist in the Environmental Sustainability category. The category recognises and celebrates businesses that embrace kaitiakitanga (guardianship) and protection of New Zealand’s natural, built and cultural resources for the benefit of current and future generations.
“Alsco is proud to be recognised and a finalist along with five other businesses in the Rotorua region who are working hard on Sustainability in the Bay of Plenty and we congratulate Lux Organics for winning this category. Alsco has been part of Rotorua and Bay of Plenty businesses and community for over 60 years – a legacy that we are doubling-down on with our ongoing commitment to a sustainable future. We have pioneered the implementation of a long-haul Electric Vehicle freighter—the first of its kind in the world saving 250 Kgs of carbon emissions per day. We have targets of Zero Waste to Landfill, 30% Water Reduction and 1/3rd of Fleet as EV’s by 2030. Alsco is here for the long haul with our future in mind”
