Our vision and values

“Leading a sustainable energy future.”

At Unison, our vision is to lead a sustainable energy future.

We know you rely on us every day to provide you with essential services, whether that is by delivering power through our electricity networks, or communications and data through our fibre networks.

And we also know we can’t just stand still in how we deliver our services or in what we deliver, because New Zealand’s energy landscape is changing with alternative technologies, such as solar, battery and electric vehicles, becoming more accessible and affordable.

We need to continue to provide a safe and reliable supply of electricity through our network, while leading the way providing platforms for customers to use new technologies effectively.

Leading a sustainable energy future is about operating in a way that harmonises between being successful and profitable for shareholders and the community, enhancing our social license, and protecting the environment such that the rates of renewable resource harvest, pollution creation, and non-renewable resource depletion can be sustained indefinitely.

Leading is about delivering smart solutions that support customers’ energy needs. It’s about consistently and persistently saying we’re ‘right up there’ in delivering to our customers and our communities.

Our vision is our common goal and we are dedicated to achieving it by living our values of Safety & Wellbeing, Excellence, Customer Service, Integrity and Team Work.

We care for the safety and wellbeing of our people, families and communities.

We take pride in what we do and always look for opportunities to be the best.

We create great customer experiences by understanding our customers' needs.

We do what we say, earning respect by being honest, fair and doing the right thing.

We work together as ‘one team’.
