Our team were thrilled to win the highly commended award in the  Sustainable Business Network (SBN) Smarter Transport Award – Sponsored  by WSP Opus.

The Smarter Transport Award recognised Waste Management for leading  the move towards electric heavy vehicles in New Zealand, through the  launch of our EV Innovation Hub – NZ’s first diesel to electric truck  conversion workshop, and our wider commitment to assisting other NZ  companies to further increase EV uptake in NZ.

This follows the recent addition of our sixth electric truck. We  continue to convert trucks in our EV Innovation Hub, maintaining the  largest EV truck fleet in Australasia.

In their 16th annual year, the SBN Awards are New  Zealand’s preeminent sustainability awards, with a focus on celebrating  transformative change in our country’s sustainability field.

Thank you SBN and congratulations in particular to Yoogo, the  category winner as well as all other finalists and winners form the  evening – it was fantastic to celebrate the sustainable endeavours and  progress of other companies, communities and individuals across NZ.
