Welcome to EMPOWER – The Environmental Management Programme ethics of ROCPAC
EMPOWER is ROCPAC’s voluntary commitment to sustainability and environmentally responsible practices. Our business, ROCPAC International, is a leader in the telecommunications technology industry. We have been distributing products and services to the telecommunications and utilities industries in New Zealand and the Pacific region since 1996. ROCPAC provides industry-related materials to the telecommunications sector of New Zealand, offering value to our customers through our innovative systems and product knowledge while supporting our customers in the Pacific with Telecommunication and IT products.
Our commitment to the environment
As a New Zealand business, we value our unique environment and natural resources, as well as the “clean green” Kiwi image. We at ROCPAC value the trust of our customers and our community to follow high business ethics as well as being environmentally responsible to New Zealand and to the planet. We hold regular round-table forums to review our “green ethics,” and we value the contributions each individual ROCPAC staff member makes towards our goal of constantly improving our internal systems in order to continually better our sustainable practices.
Reviewing and reporting
Our environmental objectives are reviewed regularly, and our audits are conducted biennially. Our environmental audits include measuring energy consumption, water, waste, and transport.
ROCPAC measures its success not only on the improvements we have made, but also on the developments and ongoing advancements we implement for the future. Our commitment to the environment grows in step with the growth of our company. We understand that the power for improvement lies within each one of us – the ability to EMPOWER.
