How is Fairfax Media sustainable?
Fairfax Media believes robust, resilient and future focused companies are essential for New Zealand’s economy, especially in a tougher market. Here are some examples of how Faifax Media practices sustainable business in New Zealand.
Fairfax Media’s newspapers are made from waste wood fibre that would otherwise end up..
..in landfill. The newsprint is produced from timber waste and low value wood from a mill in Kawerau in the eastern Bay of Plenty. Fairfax Media sources its magazine paper from mills that are FFC and PEFC certified. This means there is a Chain of Custody in the process that ensures environmental compliance of the original wood fibre.
Fairfax Media prioritises suppliers who also have a commitment to reducing their environmental impact. It’s newsprint and magazine paper producer Norske Skog Tasman holds ISO 14001 international accreditation.
Fairfax Media has a strong commitment to the environment.
Fairfax is a leading supporter of New Zealand’s key media industry events encouraging creative development including the CAANZ Media Awards, CAANZ Axis Awards, CAANZ Effie Awards, NZ Marketing Awards, Fairfax / Ad Media Agency of the Year Awards, and Fairfax Media AWARD Copy School. Other media events it supports include the Sir Terry McLean Awards, NZ Students’ Press Association Awards and the Mike Robson Fellowship.
