Reducing emissions

Meridian is dedicated to operating as a sustainable business.

Certified Emissions Measurement And Reduction Scheme

Our largest contribution to this is our 100 percent commitment to building only renewable energy generation. With this commitment we play our part to reduce the greenhouse gas intensity of New Zealand’s grid electricity.

It’s important to us, and to our customers, that we also focus on how we can reduce our corporate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

CEMARS® certification

Meridian has certified our emissions reductions for over five years. We’ve chosen to use the Certified Emissions Measurement And Reduction Scheme (CEMARS) to verify our approach to this. Our certification covers our parent company (Meridian Energy Ltd).

CEMARS certification was developed at Landcare Research New Zealand. It’s the first GHG certification scheme in the world to achieve international accreditation. It tracks how we measure, manage and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

By having our operations independently certified by CEMARS you can be confident that we are always working to minimise our impact.
