Energy, carbon and waste

Paving the way for a low-carbon, zero-waste future.

At Whirika, we work collaboratively with businesses, communities, and councils to find innovative solutions to reduce their carbon footprint, embrace renewable energy solutions, and eliminate unnecessary waste.

Our team understands the complexities of energy management, carbon reduction, and waste minimisation. We’re committed to innovation and sustainability, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. Our aim is to go beyond short-term fixes to find long-term sustainability strategies that get us closer to our vision for a low-carbon and zero-waste future.

We create and implement strategies that align with an organisation’s unique goals and operations. From comprehensive carbon footprint assessments, to implementing energy efficiency measures and waste reduction programmes, we provide practical solutions that get results.  

Together, we can harness the power of innovation to build a world where clean energy, carbon neutrality, and zero-waste are not just aspirations, but everyday realities. Join us on the journey towards a sustainable future.
