We recently hosted another of our successful “Behind the Scenes” site events, this time at an extremely well run timber treatment plant in Papakura.
Around 25 business people from companies as diverse as Fonterra, Villa Maria, Waste Management and KiwiRail, came along to have a look at the measures Papakura Timber Processors have put in place to ensure their chemicals and products have no impact on the local waterways.
These Behind the Scene events continue to be very popular as they offer an opportunity for businesses to learn from other businesses about practical measures that can be put in place for environmental protection. The discussions are wide-ranging and a lot of free and frank information is shared without the complications of Council regulatory threats.
This programme of site visits is funded by the Auckland Councils Manukau Harbour Forum who should be acknowledged for their proactive support of initiatives like this, that protect and enhance the Manukau Harbour.
