SBC membership offers the chance to be a part of industry-wide collaborations with other businesses facing similar sustainability challenges. By pooling time, resources, ideas and energy together to tackle these challenges, our members are able to influence change faster and on a larger scale than they would be able to achieve alone.
In 2018, a number of members in the freight industry approached SBC individually with the same problem: their transportation emissions were huge, and they wondered if other members were finding theirs the same. SBC brought these members together to collaborate on the Low Carbon Freight Pathway, an ambitious but achievable 30-year plan to progressively decarbonise New Zealand’s freight system.
Through this successful collaboration, SBC realised it had a unique ability to connect members in similar industries facing similar challenges together. We also began to see demand from more members for a forum where they can come together to go further faster and boost their collective impact.

SBC working groups
In addition to our formal collaborations, SBC has also created a number of working groups for members to join. Focusing on specific challenges that span across industries, these working groups are a space where members share insights, opportunities, challenges and learnings.
