Who we are

Z is a modern energy company and plays an essential role in keeping Aotearoa New Zealand moving. We have a nationwide footprint across our retail, fuel and supply infrastructure network, as well as a growing network of EV chargers at select sites and we own 100 percent of the electricity retailer Flick Electric. 

We have a long, proud Kiwi history that continues to evolve and shape who we are. 

In 2011, Z Energy was born with the simple promise of ‘Z is for New Zealand’. We took a global oil brand and made it our own – capturing our company’s independent spirit and unique Kiwi values. 

While we have faced constant change and evolution over this time, our commitment to Aotearoa New Zealand has remained constant: a foundation for why we exist and the choices we make. Now, more than ever before, the interconnection between people and te taiao, the natural environment - is critical context for Z, and for all people. This principle of interconnectedness and interdependence is a driver of our strategy and our commitment to the people and communities we serve. 

For Z to thrive into the future we must deliver solutions that support the aspiration of New Zealanders, enhance the lives of our people and communities, while protecting our natural world for future generations. This is a challenge we embrace, and which is reflected in what we stand for and the strategy we have set. 

We are proud to be the Kiwi contingent in the Ampol Group, an independent Trans-Tasman energy company, with a supply chain and operations in international markets, that is united behind the shared commitment of ‘powering better journeys, today and tomorrow’. While many of the challenges and opportunities we face go beyond national boundaries, together we have the scale, influence, and capability to deliver for our customers, communities, and our people.  

Our Purpose

We have a clear purpose: Powering better journeys, today and tomorrow. 

This sentence captures Z’s essence as an energy company – the enabler of journeys for our customers and communities. 

The word ‘better’ is a simple word that encapsulates so much of our aspiration. It reflects our commitment to delivering value now – safe, secure, reliable transport energy – with the opportunity to deliver new journeys with new energy solutions in a changing world.
