OneFortyOne wins Community Impact Award

OneFortyOne wins Community Impact Award

08 Mar 24


Last week OneFortyOne New Zealand received the Community Impact Award at the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. This is the first time a business has won this award, and we were joint winners with The Food Factory, Nelson, New Zealand.
We chose to enter in the community impact award category because we wanted to show the multitude of different ways businesses like ours can make a positive difference in our communities.

Whilst we often look to the government and charities to do the hard work in the community, the business community is often overlooked as a way we can make true lasting impact across many levels.

‘Making a positive difference’ is a strategic priority for our company, and we believe this is what differentiates us, it makes us more integrated, it brings sustainability and community to the forefront, and it means we continue to make a positive difference even when times are tough.
There are many examples of how we do this: from supporting grassroots community organisations with our community grants program. Partnering with Habitat for Humanity Nelson to help build community homes, to investing in long-term sediment studies to build industry best practices, to supporting seagrass research and positive climate action. It’s also about the way we work in the community, how we provide forest access for the community, and how we partner with our iwi landowners.

We are strongly tied to where we live and work, and want to play our part in supporting vibrant communities and protecting our environment.


OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
