Our Commitment to New Zealand

Comfortech® recognises our position as an industry leader and the serious challenges facing our environment. As such, we are committed to reducing the impact of our business operations, products and services on the environment.

We’re proudly New Zealand operated, and we take our role of looking after our home seriously. Our goals are focused on sustainability and energy efficiency, to be future focused and ensure we strive towards our purpose of creating New Zealand's most comfortable living and working spaces. We deliver on our commitments to New Zealand through the way that we operate, the products that we manufacture and distribute and by caring for our people, community, and our environment.

Our Environmental Commitment – 30% reduction of carbon emissions by 2030

At Comfortech®, we are committed to the New Zealand environment and as part of Fletcher Building, a leading building products, construction, and distribution business we take our environmental responsibility seriously. We understand the need to address carbon emissions and mitigate the impacts of climate change.

Fletcher Building was the first in our industry in Australasia to set a Science-Based Target (SBT) for carbon reduction and is on track to meet this target of reducing our combined Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 30% by 2030. Emissions for FY22 were 1.1 million tCO2e which is a 12% reduction from our baseline year of FY18.

Better houses, products, and infrastructure

Over the past two years, there has been a clear focus on offering products with sustainability certifications to customers, playing our part to decarbonise the building sector and supporting our customers’ own sustainability goals. These products are featured in the LowCO house and across other construction projects.

Our Social Commitment 

The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation New Zealand

The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation New Zealand (ARFNZ) is New Zealand’s principal authority for all respiratory conditions, representing the interests of the 700,000 New Zealanders living with respiratory disease.

The Foundation leads respiratory health knowledge through research, education, and advocacy, with the goal to reduce respiratory-related hospitalisations, and improve respiratory health outcomes for all.

As research shows that damp, mouldy and poorly ventilated homes affect the respiratory health of many New Zealanders, it is our goal to create the most comfortable living and working spaces for all New Zealanders. By supporting the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation New Zealand, we can achieve our goals, together.
