We won't have a society if we destroy the environment.

Working with Government

Since our establishment in 1993, Recovery has worked closely with New Zealand Government, providing data on our activities, as well as representing the refrigeration and air conditioning industry.

Recovery actively responds to Government consultations where refrigerants, the industry and the environment are affected. We endeavour to provide a balanced response based on our deep knowledge and relationships with industry stakeholders.

In 2018 Recovery brought together a project team of representatives from throughout the industry to design a scheme that could operate under a regulated framework.

Following the declaration of synthetic greenhouse gases as a priority product by the Minister for the Environment in 2020, Recovery Trust submitted an application to the Ministry for the Environment to be appointed the Product Stewardship Organisation for the regulated scheme. We are currently progressing that application.
