BE Ethics- A Delicate Balance
Balanced Energy is based on Waiheke Island, a small island with a population of 7000. Waiheke is a Maori word meaning “where the water comes down”. The island is a 35 minute ferry ride into the Gulf of Hauraki, from Auckland City in the North Island of New Zealand. The climate is sub-tropical.
Balanced Energy products are made on Waiheke Island and at other special locations around New Zealand; some of our ingredients which we cannot source in New Zealand are imported.
Waiheke Island is a perfect place to make our products due to the clean and unpolluted atmosphere. No smog, very little electro-smog, which is important for creating a pure energy medicine.
Our water supply is rainwater and we have a grey water system to recycle wastewater onto our garden and through our toilets to reduce water usage.
Waiheke Island has a very strict recycling policy because we have to send all our waste for landfill off the island to be disposed of. So, at Balanced Energy, we recycle all our glass, paper, cardboard, plastic, plastic bags, green waste, cans, oil and scrap metal and e- waste. The Island’s transfer station has a shop which sells any items that can be reused.
Ethics and sustainability in business, with regards to the environment and in our relationships are extremely important to Balanced Energy. We aim to deliver a high quality product that is ethically made from local, organic or sustainably produced materials, with recyclable or biodegradable packaging.
As we believe that everything is interconnected, Balanced Energy operates to a high ethical and sustainable standard throughout our business practices from supplier to consumer. Honesty and transparency in our interactions with colleagues and clients are foremost. We believe that business transactions need to benefit both parties to be sustainable.
