We are developing a strong technology services product line that is focused on data management and geospatial analyses (GIS) and we would love to talk with you about everything we do!

At ABC, we recognise that we live in a changing world where businesses have responsibilities to their environments and communities. As such, ABC is growing in capabilities that support the complex environmental problems that Aotearoa New Zealand faces, where our core purpose is to promote and support the environment. While we're continuing to develop how and what we do to focus on this purpose, ABC is committed to working towards a social enterprise model where a portion of annual profits are returned to funds to further contribute to our environmental purpose.
