Tall Poppy Sets Goal to become First Kiwi Zero-Carbon Real Estate Company

19 November, 2020

We’ve set a goal to become the first zero-carbon real estate company within five years, building on our rapid growth over the 12 months.

Tall Poppy’s sustainability pledge was announced at our recent annual conference, which saw more than 200 people gather at Te Papa in Wellington - the first event the national museum hosted when the city moved to Level 1.

Investment in sustainability comes at a crucial time for us - since April 2020, our team has grown by 27%. Initially, we are working to transition our vehicle fleet to electric vehicles, before becoming zero carbon within five years.

We’re partnering with Carbn Asset Management (Carbn), to assist with the transition of our vehicle fleet to electric vehicles. 

Carbn is a Government, and Private, initiative focused on progressing New Zealand’s vehicle fleet toward a zero-emission future.

We are excited to be working with Tall Poppy on their emission reduction journey

Carbn’s Transformation Director, Richard Christensen says “transitioning to zero-emission vehicles is an important step and they are now part of the disruptive era that the transport and mobility sector has embarked upon.

This is a natural alignment for Tall Poppy given their own disruptive and innovative approach to the real estate industry”. 

We’re also investing in more intuitive technology which will be rolled out over the next 12 months – enhancing our award-winning customer service, which has become even more crucial during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Moving to electric vehicles is just the first step in our sustainability journey, which we’ll be sharing with you along the way.
