From Australia to New Zealand to Singapore, we are proud of everything that ESG stands for and we want to share it with you.
PASSION, PURPOSE AND FAMILY. WE ARE ESG.
Since the inception of E. Sime & Company in 1923, based in Wellington New Zealand, the passion that has always flowed through our family owned business now sees us operating across New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.
Now trading as ESG Asia Pacific, we are extremely proud to boast about our innovative programs and conscientious environmental efforts that cement us as a leader in the away-from-home washroom market.
Our successes are determined by our passion and drive to help make the world a better place. We believe in working for a purpose and not just being in business for the profits. We strive to make businesses all across the Asia Pacific region recognise the positive impacts that coincide with making a commitment to environmentally responsible product choices.
Our approach includes 100% recycled paper options, environmentally preferable hand hygiene formulations and controlled-use dispensing systems that help to minimise consumption.
From our production facility in Singapore, to our import, marketing and distribution functions in Australia & New Zealand and through to our ESG Foundation, we work for a purpose and that can be seen in every member of the ESG family and our selected distribution partners.
