Our sustainable principles:

As a leader in the panel industry New Zealand Panels Group adopts and promotes sustainable business practices designed to minimise our national and global environmental impact.

Prime Panels continues to search out alternative products to meet the growing needs of our environmentally conscious customers, while creating processes in our manufacturing plant that are mindful of the environment for future generations.

Some of the sustainable principles include:

  • The use of sustainably sourced veneers, melamine and boards
  • Suppling low formaldehyde board.
  • Reducing our manufacturing waste.
  • Control of manufacturing waste such as separating waste for recycling.
  • Re-using cover sheets and pallets from suppliers and customers and recycling packaging and plastic strapping.
