Te pae tawhiti – our intergenerational vision

The world is changing all around us, but there are constants – our land, people, identity and community.


Our purpose

Our tūpuna were creative, astute and forward-thinking people who gifted us our land, whakapapa and cultural identity. It is our responsibility to preserve and enhance this taonga, now and for future generations.

We will achieve this through the sustainable use and development of our land and resources and by creating a community that our people (our families, staff, customers and associates) are proud of.

Our goals

Te Pae Tawhiti will ensure we align our common energy, working together to achieve common goals:

To nurture and develop our taonga consistently with our tikanga;

To harness the talents of our people to ensure the sustainable growth of our taonga;

To ensure our people live well and are connected to our legacy and purpose;

To create an inspiring and innovative place where talented people want to live and work.

Guiding objectives

Our guiding objectives are broad to give us the freedom to create new and exciting ways of doing things, consistently with our values and tikanga. These two aspects are vital to our success – they underpin everything we do:

  1. Development and innovation
  2. Identity and integrity
