Responsible Business

At Frequency, we have a deep connection to New Zealand, our culture, and our land. This connection drives our commitment to the sustainable development of our nation’s infrastructure. It provides the foundation for how we live; from resilient transport and freight networks and public transport systems, to high quality teaching and learning environments, and sustainable, healthy housing.

Our Commitment

Frequency is committed to positive change. We place a high value on ethical and environmental practices including respect for individuals, and engagement with communities. We are conscious and responsible throughout our operational and decision-making processes.

People are at the heart of Frequency. Our strength lies within the broad range of backgrounds, perspectives, experience, and diversity of thought our people bring. We are employee owned with partners who are collectively passionate about Aotearoa and our industry. As proud Kiwi’s, the ability to be part of our nation building is at the essence of our people, brand, and values, and the reason why we continue to grow. Leading with inclusion underpins a workplace culture that empowers and inspires.

We recognise we have a part to play in preserving te ao Māori by embracing our history and heritage. We are working on this evolving and transformative journey that will bring together the many threads that already exist within our approach and extend them in new directions.
