Thinking of the future

We’re always looking for innovative ways that we can do business better and as we grow we’re becoming more aware of the economic, environmental and social consequences.

To keep ourselves in check and strive to improve our processes we now have a Sustainability Team who are based at our Wellington HQ. We’ve also joined the New Zealand Sustainable Business Network as we strive to make some positive changes and push along some of the initiatives we’ve already put in place.

A company’s view on sustainability and whether it actually puts any of these principles into practice can influence customers. At Xero we have nothing to hide. We’re not perfect but we’re on our way to being more sustainable! You can read our Sustainability Policy here.

Just another reason to love Xero! 🙂
