PUREBREAD

The Good Dough Show 

The first bakery to produce BioGro certified organic bread products back in 1996, Purebread Organic now bakes a wide range– from Big Daddy (the big seller) to gluten-free Young Buck paleo and vegan loaves. 

“Creating certified organic food is the core of our sustainability commitment,” says founder and MD Robert Glensor (pictured). “using real food – like organic potatoes oven baked and free-range eggs instead of the potato starch and egg replacer that other bakeries often use.”

Purebread Organic offers around 120 different products online, with free delivery. Recycling results in less than 1kg weekly waste, going to the landfill.

MOJO COFFEE CARTEL

Less Carbon, More Caffeine Steve Gianoutsos

“At Mojo, we feel it’s our responsibility to find ways to meet the needs of the present without compromising the future. By providing our customers with a variety of sustainable options, and implementing waste reducing systems, we’re able to reduce our footprint” says founder Steve Gianoutsos (pictured) “Customers can have their coffee in a ceramic cup, borrow an AgainAgain cup or bring their own KeepCup. All our takeaway cups, lids and cold drink cups are 100% made from plants and compostable, and most of our cafes are hooked into Ecotricity for their power, which is carboNZero certified.”

That’s saved Mojo more than 60 tonnes of carbon emission in the past 12 months. Add that compostable dump bags and Mojo’s footprint is getting tinier by the day.

Repurposing Rubble

Although the impact on CentrePort’s infrastructure from the 2016 earthquake was significant, the Port is well into regeneration mode.  And the best bit is – the rubble from demolition etc.  is being reused and recycled in the process.

“One of our goals is for none of the waste material to leave the port,” CEO Derek Nind (pictured) says.  “Instead it is being reused in various projects on port.  Concrete, glass and steel from damaged / demolished assets is being utilised as we regenerate.” 

CentrePort-related activity contributes $3.0bn to GDP, it facilitates $20bn worth of freight a year and directly employs over 250 people.  CentrePort’s vision is to be ‘the port of choice for Central New Zealand.’
