This is the most exciting time in the history of innovation. Advances in technology have created opportunities at an ever-increasing velocity in medicine, energy, communications and beyond.
Technological advances require energy, rare earth minerals, copper and strategic minerals. Our interests reflect that need, bringing together the innovators, the financiers, and the necessary experience to ensure that these dreams and opportunities become realities.
We are proud of our partnerships with Otago University, The University of Sydney, Victoria University and other key players in the on-going transformation of health and well-being. Together we are cultivating change, funding biomedical research, and developing our own anti-inflammatory therapeutics and preventative medicine.
Our projects must meet our high standards of social responsibility, environmental sustainability, and our increasing commitment to the low carbon world.
Duncan Hardie, the Founder and Director of Hardie Pacific’s early successes with property development in Aotearoa NZ allowed a scaled continuation in Australia, with Goodman Hardie evolving into a major world player in industrial property.
2005 marked the creation of subsidiary company Biodiversity Land Pty Ltd, the first dedicated biodiversity land company in NSW. The move was in response to the growing public awareness for protection of the environment.
The period 2010 – 2015 saw Hardie Pacific complement its property portfolio with investment into the resources sector.
The significance of biodiversity and the importance of sustainability provided a natural broadening of the group’s base.
In 2017, forays into biotech were made with research into plants with known natural remedy qualities, along with harnessing peptide-based therapy to control inflammatory diseases. Partnering with international universities, both projects are adding to known science.
In 2018 we started investigations into carbon sequestration using Aotearoa NZ’s Dunite rocks. This became our groups principal focus in the 2021/2022, with our continuing current drilling program showing encouraging results.
Our investment record of over fifty years demonstrates our ability to see and act on early potential.
