Sustainability

At KiwiRail being sustainable is about ensuring we undertake our business in a way that creates value both for our business and the people and environment we rely on to be successful. This includes future generations and the wider environment.

Some highlights:

  • KiwiRail focuses on sustaining a zero harm work environment for almost 4,000 employees across New Zealand.
  • KiwiRail is the key sponsor of Tracksafe, raising awareness and safety around the rail corridor.
  • Our rail network takes large volumes of freight off the roads, making roads safer and significantly reducing New Zealand’s transport CO2 emissions.
  • Interislander supports local environmental concerns, such as wilding pine control in the Marlborough Sounds, and providing free travel for Project Jonah’s Marine Mammal Medics to whale strandings.
