We sell electricity to our customers through two brands – Meridian and Powershop in New Zealand. 

Listed on both the NZX and ASX,  Meridian is one of New Zealand’s largest listed companies and employs around 1,000 people across New Zealand. The New Zealand Government is our majority shareholder at 51%.

Environment

As a responsible generator, we undertake extensive and ongoing work to reduce our impacts on water and biodiversity in the areas we generate from. Some of our broader environmental work includes Project River Recovery, Aotearoa’s longest-running conservation and business partnership, and the Waiau Fisheries Wildlife Habitat Enhancement Trust.

Take a look at some of the great environmental work our people are doing.

Project River Recovery

Community

Being a genuinely sustainable company means supporting and empowering the communities that we are all part of. We’ve been working with national organisations like KidsCan since 2013 as Principal Partner, to provide Kiwi kids with the basics they need to remove the barriers to learning.  

We work closely with the Department of Conservation (DoC) and Ngai Tahu as principal partner of the Kākāpō Recovery Programme, ensuring a future of these endangered taonga species. 

For the past 14 years, we’ve provided over $8.5 million towards community-led projects through our Power Up Community Funds in the areas where we generate. Building long-term relationships is an important part of what we do.
