OMANZ Constitution and Rules
OMANZ has a full set of rules and regulations which applies to all members – this was updated in December 2017
Contact us for a copy of these rules.
The Out of Home (OOH) industry is very conscious of its responsibility, ensuring that it gives back to the community as it is the most public advertising medium. It is located where people live, shop, socialise, travel and work, and informs the character of a city or town or local community.
Across New Zealand, the OOH industry contributes a significant number of items of community infrastructure, including bus shelters, kiosks, park benches, pedestrian walkways and telephone booths.
OOH contributes $250 million GDP each year to the economy and employs more than 750 people directly. Government and superannuation funds profit from OOH through rents paid on leasing signs, stock from roads, railways and buildings.
The OOH industry plays an important role in promoting the arts, sports and charitable organisations. In 2015, it is estimated that the industry donated advertising space valued at more than $34 million to charitable and community campaigns.
Environment & Sustainability
As the leading representative body for New Zealand Out of Home (OOH) industry, OMANZ and its Members recognises its responsibility to minimise the impact of the industry\’s operations on the built and natural environment and to contribute to the sustainability of the communities in which it operates. This includes the recycling of waste materials, where practicable.
OMANZ members have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to reducing the impact of the industry on the environment and are continually improving sustainability by promoting best practice.
This includes the following practices:
- Adopting programs to reduce waste generation, including the waste produced from the production and display of PVC advertising banners.
- Monitoring and reporting on evolving OOH technologies that reduce the impact of industry on the built and natural environment.
- Establishing achievable and measurable environmental initiatives, including:
- Benchmarks for monitoring the reduction in the generation of waste, including recycling programs for outdoor advertising skins.
- Programs to conserve energy, water and natural resources through increased efficiency and the introduction of new technologies and production methods.
- Targets to increase the number of fuel-efficient vehicles within operational transport fleets.
- Providing sponsorships or in-kind support towards community initiatives that champion environmental causes.
- Communicating openly and constructively with relevant authorities, government agencies and the community on sustainability and environmental issues which relate to the industry.
