Community

Community

Our businesses work in vastly different and unique communities across the globe, supporting those communities through sponsorship, volunteering and other initiatives.

We recognise the obligations we have to the communities in which we operate and to the people who call those communities home.

We act honestly, in good faith and in the best interests of the company, to ensure that all stakeholders are treated fairly.

As a decentralised company, our business units are responsible for implementing their own local community involvement initiatives. This approach encourages diversity in our community initiatives and ensures our support is relevant to both the stakeholder group and the business unit involved.

Sponsorship and support

Our businesses are proud to sponsor a range of community, industry and charitable organisations. That sponsorship is diverse, ranging from environmental initiatives to educational institutions and industry events.

One initiative which we, as a group, are very proud to support is First Foundation. We are the principal sponsor of First Foundation - a unique educational trust founded to give teenagers with plenty of talent, but few financial resources, a pathway through university study. Fletcher Building assists them through university while also providing work experience and mentoring opportunities across our businesses. First Foundation has already supported 300 young New Zealanders through tertiary funding assistance and connecting them with work experience and mentoring opportunities.

We also support the Christchurch Arts Festival, Champion Canterbury Business and the University of Canterbury Quake Centre.

However, due to our decentralised nature, sponsorship initiatives are predominantly supported and managed by our individual business units. Therefore sponsorship applications are best directed to the specific Fletcher Building business you see appropriate. 

In addition to the support from our business units, the Fletcher Trust also contributes to programmes related to education and youth development.
