The world is changing all around us, but there are constants – our land, people, identity and community.


Our Purpose

Kono’s purpose is to preserve and enhance our taonga for the benefit of current and future generations.

We will achieve this through the sustainable use and development of our land and resources and by creating a community that our people (our families, staff, customers and associates) are proud of.

To create an inspiring and innovative place where talented people want to live and work.


Guiding Objectives

Our guiding objectives are broad to give us the freedom to create new and exciting ways of doing things, consistently with our values and tikanga. These two aspects are vital to our success – they underpin everything we do:

1.       Development and innovation

2.       Identity and integrity

We understand that innovation and adaptability will be the key to our success. We are an efficient organization, focused on our people, our resources and our environment.

We will continue to grow our success as an organisation through the sustainable and successful development of our land, the creation and provision of high-quality goods and services and through nurturing people’s cultural identity, knowledge and strength.
