Cook Brothers Construction is committing to a more sustainable future. As a company, we have made the switch to Ecotricity as our chosen energy provider for all sites and offices.

Ecotricity is New Zealand's only provider of 100% Renewable and carboNZero Certified electricity. They source renewable carboNZero Certified electricity from the Monowai, Roaring Meg, Teviot hydro dams, the Flat Hill Wind Farm and their Solar customers.

Ecotricity is a 100% owned and operated by kiwis, which means that all profits stay in New Zealand. By making this change, Cook Brothers Construction is supporting the development of new renewable generation projects for our communities, without costing the earth.

Cook Brothers are proud to join the ranks of other businesses such as KPMG, The Wellington Zoo, Les Mills, Charge Net, H&M, Barkers, Greenpeace, Farro Fresh, The Headwaters, Regus and Antipodes who have also signed up for a greener future.

Cook Brothers Construction understands the urgency of climate action and has firm commitments to dramatically reduce our carbon footprint moving forward with an ambitious goal of becoming carbon negative by 2030. 

Ecotricity is the only CarbonZero certified electricity provider in New Zealand with all the life-cycle emissions from electricity purchased offset through the planting of certified native forestry. For us, Ecotricity is a fantastic step towards a better future for our children and our world.
