NA Group ensures we minimise our carbon footprint by continuously reviewing our work policies and procedures to warrant that we are performing using the most environmentally conscious methods available. NA Group has attained the AS/NZS ISO 14001 Environmental management systems certification since 2012, continually demonstrating a standard that sets out our business requirements for an environmental management system. It has ensured we improve our environmental performance through efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage.
With our continual drive to improve our carbon footprint, we decided to repurpose one of the world’s wastes that occupies large volumes of landfill space – car tyres. Traditionally, car tyres have been disposed of in several ways including in landfill or by burning them off. A single tyre takes approximately 50-80 years to decompose which causes a major space problem in landfill. By burning tyres, hazardous air pollutants are created, which can be dangerous and detrimental to the environment. NA Group utilises Crumb Rubber Modified Bitumen (CRMB) which is a bitumen that combines crumbed recycled tyres within the heated bitumen that is sprayed on the road prior to the aggregate application. This provides the potential of repurposing and recycling hundreds of tyres in each spray seal application, saving tyres from going into landfill. This increases the environmental sustainability of our completed projects and reduces our carbon footprint as a business.
Spray sealed road surfaces mixed with crumbed used tyres are also more elastic, durable and crack-resistant, which increases the longevity of the road. By recycling old tyres in our spray seal service, we contribute towards one of our core business values, to strive for environmental sustainability. This is a great example of how we can deliver essential projects and maintenance using green and sustainable methods.

We are also delighted to announce that we have transitioned from an AS/NZS ISO 4801 Safety management systems certification to an AS/NZS ISO 45001 Occupational health and safety management systems certification.
We first achieved our AS/NZS ISO 9001 Quality management systems certification in 2012, demonstrating the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet our customer and regulatory requirements. This ensures we meet the needs of our customers and other stakeholders effectively. This has been achieved by building a framework to ensure consistent quality in the provision of our business and the services we offer.
We first achieved our AS/NZS ISO 14001 Environmental management systems certification in 2012, continually demonstrating a standard that sets out our business requirements for an environmental management system. It has ensured we improve our environmental performance through efficient use of resources and reduction of waste, gaining a competitive advantage.
Our newest certification attainment is AS/NZS ISO 45001 Occupational health and safety management systems. This certification demonstrates our commitment to provide a safe and healthy workplace by preventing work-related injury and ill health, as well as by proactively improving our OH&S performance. This was a transition from our previously attained AS/NZS ISO 4801 Safety management systems certification, with the transition ensuring heightened OH&S by advocating top management to set out and communicate workplace safety policies and objectives. This ensures that we demonstrate leadership by taking accountability for the performance of OH&S and assisting all levels of management in the business towards integrated OH&S goals.
These certification achievements showcase our commitment as a business to continually improve our quality and procedures, practice environmental sustainability and create a safe workplace for all our staff.
