Principles

Underpinning our vision are:

  • Whaingaroatanga: defining and building on our uniqueness
  • Whakawhānaungatanga: understanding the value of relationships and the need to maintain and strengthen them based on mutual respect
  • Kaupapatanga: driven from values within rather than reactive to external influences
  • Sustainability: ensuring that all we engage in contributes to sustainable processes and outcomes
