Inzide joined the New Zealand Green Building Council in 2006. Steve Aschebrock, the Managing Director and joint owner of Inzide was elected as chair of the board for New Zealand Green Building Counsel's Industry Group: Construction and Supply at the end of 2019. We are proud to have been involved in many key NZGBC greenstar buildings. Notably in 2007 Inzide outfitted New Zealand's first 5 Greenstar building in Wellington; Meridian Energies Head Office. Inzide strongly believe in and support the efforts of the New Zealand Green Building Council and look forward to many more joint projects in the future. Because at the end of the day the more we do to support green ethos within the building industry the better it is for all New Zealander's.
Inzide has proudly been a member of The Sustainable Business Network for over a decade.
Supporting their initiatives many times over the years and providing time to be a recycling expert on their various panels. In 2017 SBN ramped up and created their circular economy accelerator program (with sponsorship from Inzide).
In August 2019 Inzide was invited by SBN to talk at their national roadshow. A business campaign to increase 'product take back' schemes and to help businesses take more responsibility for what they make.
Rachel Brown CEO of SBN - "It’s fundamental to our future that we all take greater responsibility for the environmental impacts of what we do in our personal and professional lives. If businesses are not providing their customers with an end of life solution they are presenting them with an end of life problem. That has to be managed and paid for by the customer or rate payers. Product stewardship schemes help solve the waste issue. They enable businesses to capture valuable resources. They create better and deeper relationships with customers. These are vital steps towards the emerging low carbon circular economy, which we are helping grow in NZ together with our members".
