From The Top
“3R Group is a vibrant young business with world class ideas in product stewardship. I am especially excited by the innovations around end use of materials and the potential to translate these ideas to markets beyond New Zealand. 3R is at the forefront of this new thinking.”
SIR STEPHEN TINDALL KNZM, Shareholder, 3R Group and Founder of K1W1
About the Board
A shared passion for innovation and sustainability brings 3R’s diverse group of directors together. Each director brings a wealth of experience and a track record of success to the 3R table. They’ve worked in industries as diverse as consumer goods, agriculture, logistics, financial services and law, as well as recycling and resource recovery.
Rather than perpetuating the myth that thinking green is anti-business and stifles economic growth, the board believe that changing how we view and use our resources is now essential to continued business prosperity.
They also believe, while appropriate legislation does have a role to play in the resource and environmental space, real leadership and action will come from those in the business sector who anticipate the changing landscape and respond to these opportunities. Naturally enough, these are the organisations that will gain most from engagement with 3R.
We are working in a tough market – constrained by a lack of political maturity and low public consciousness. In that regard, it could be argued we are ahead of our time. Equally, it means we have first mover advantage. I believe that the lessons we have learned from being New Zealand’s first dedicated Reimagineers means we are in a very good position to meet the demand for our expertise and services that will inevitably eventuate as New Zealand faces the reality that the time to transition to a low-carbon economy is now.
