Our sustainable initiatives drive towards future success.
Sustainability underpins our work at Golden Bay Cement. We endeavour to set the benchmark for the construction industry, pioneering sustainable and ethical practices with minimal carbon footprint.


Golden Bay Cement continues to aspire to be New Zealand’s undisputed leader in cement. While we work through a longer term business strategy our shorter 5 year strategy aligns with the over arching Fletcher Building objective of re focusing the NZ core businesses.

The strategy deepens our commitment to our people, carbon emission reduction initiatives, manufacturing and supply chain investment and efficiency and of course to our customers. We want our business to thrive and we are committed to playing our part in a sustainable future as the only fully integrated cement manufacturer in NZ.


Addressing climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face globally. We recognise that as an organisation we have a part to play in preventing climate change, and for this reason we have committed to achieving a 30% reduction in emissions by 2030. The target is in alignment with the Paris Accord and based on maintaining the global temperature rise to well below 2°C.

Our NZ made cement has been independently assessed to demonstrate a 20% lower carbon emissions per tonne of cement than our import competitors.
