Energy Use

Globally Aliaxis has a goal to reach 100% renewable electricity by 2025 to help us reduce our CO2 emissions by 75% per tonne of production on our sites.… but guess what, in New Zealand with the support of Meridian Energy’s Certified Renewable Energy program, we’ve already done it!

Certified Renewable Electricity

As of the November 2021, Dynex joined Meridian Energy’s Certified Renewable Energy Programme. We’re proud to be with Meridian because they’re leaders in sustainability and are committed to only generating electricity from 100% renewable sources – wind, water and sun.

Meridian’s Certified Renewable Energy Programme allows us to purchase renewable energy certificates to verify that the amount of electricity we use from the grid is matched on an annual basis with electricity produced from Meridian’s certified hydro stations and wind farms. Committing to this programme enables Aliaxis NZ to report our Scope 2 electricity emissions as zero*.

By supporting this programme, we hope other businesses will get on board to drive demand for renewable energy and enable all other energy generators to invest in renewable energy and drive New Zealand towards its own goal of 100% renewable energy by 2030.

LED Lights

We’ve undertaken a massive project to replace all conventional lights with LED equivalents at our site in Avondale by the end of 2023.

Water Reduction

In 2022 we upgraded the water cooling and recirculation systems used in our Auckland factory to improve efficiency and eliminate leakage. We make sure we collect rainwater from our roof to supplement our water usage.
