Our Mission and Values
GREEN GORILLA MISSION
To develop and provide sustainable waste and recycling solutions that maximise recovery and re-use and divert waste from landfills.
GREEN GORILLA VALUES
BE BRAVE - Grow through courage
We set the trends of waste services in our country. Fuelled by ambition, innovation and kiwi ingenuity, we brave uncharted territory to maximise recovery, reuse and recycling for a cleaner, greener New Zealand.
AIM HIGHER – Quality effort every day
Every day we ask ourselves, “how much better could it be?” We are intentionally tough on ourselves and strive for excellence in everything we do. We bring our ‘A game’ every day and aim to do it better.
HERE FOR GOOD - Our roots run deep; our heritage is important
Our DNA is 100 per cent kiwi. We are invested in our country environmentally, economically and emotionally to cultivate a legacy that will live beyond us. People make the difference, which is why we invest in them. Just as we aim to leave our environment better, we want to leave our people better too.
WALK TALL - Be proud
We take pride in who we are and what we do. We’re genuinely committed, honest to a fault and have more integrity than you can shake a stick at. Taking ownership is second nature to a Green Gorilla.
ONE TEAM - We’re all in this together
Collaboration is key to our success. By utilising each other’s strengths, co-operating, communicating and collectively working towards a common goal, we achieve gorilla-sized success.

- SMART Goal setting
- Financial literacy tips and tool
- Effective writing for workplace document

“I liked the whole thing. Everything around what skills you’ll need for the future. I like the whole being in the growth mindset and especially for the whole lifelong learning and when giving feedback. It’s been great.”
