DOWNER WELCOMES GVR INTO THE FOLD

Downer New Zealand Limited has purchased a 100% holding in Green Vision Recycling. For organisations working in the construction sector, Green Vision offers a range of products and services to help reduce the overall industry impacts and lengthen material lifecycles. Downer has aquired Green Vision Recycling to strengthen its ability to offer sustainable products and services to its current and future customers while maintining the relationships that Green Vision Recycling has with it’s current customer base.

Jeff Oldman, Executive General Manager – Products, believes strongly in sustainability. “Downer is always looking for new ways to meet the growing expectations of our customers and Green Vision Recycling opens opportunities to develop innovative products that reduce landfill waste and maximise the recycling opportunities. Our civil construction and asset maintenance work requires the greater use of recycled engineering materials along with a reduction in the waste generated on our projects going to landfill. Through Green Vision, we are able to recycle material such as concrete waste from our contracts and reprocess it for use in future projects.”
