It’s an approach that works, and in 2016 we were the proud recipient of a BACS Good Business Egg Award for Community Empowerment. To celebrate our win, we donated $20,000 to the Women’s Refuge to support the work they’re doing with families across New Zealand.
To help the recreational users of Lake Dunstan to gauge weather conditions before heading off on their trips to the Lake, we installed a webcam at the top of Clyde Dam. It came after a suggestion from local users of the lake wanting up-to-date information before they started their journey.
The webcam provides a panoramic view over the lake from the top of Clyde Dam. And it's updated every 15 minutes, ensuring an accurate take on current conditions. Click here to view the webcam of Lake Dunstan.

Contact is celebrating the birth of a new company initiative that gives staff the opportunity to help save New Zealand’s endangered national bird – the humble kiwi.
‘Kiwi Contact’ provides support for Operation Nest EggTM, an educational programme focused on kiwi conservation run by the Department of Conservation (DOC) and independent charity Kiwis for Kiwi. This initiative is new pilot programme involving local Taupo schools and staff.
We have around 45 sites across New Zealand, including 11 power stations. We work hard to make sure our operations are safe, and to reduce and mitigate any issues that may impact on our neighbours.
In addition to our regional partnerships we have an employee volunteer programme which enables our people across Contact to contribute part of their time to good causes. We call this Community Contact and each year we have 8,000 hours available to help causes all over the country.
