Giving you the power to make a difference

Nature is speaking and it’s time for us to listen.

Now, more than ever we need to work together because taking care of nature is the only way forward. We’re committed to doing good things with our energy and to show this, we’re working on a range of projects to help Aotearoa decarbonise and achieve a net-zero carbon future. Simply put, when nature thrives, we all thrive.

Giving kids a kickstart with KidsCan

We believe that every child deserves a decent start at life. Currently, one in five kids in New Zealand live in hardship. KidsCan offer practical, hands-on assistance to thousands of children in schools up and down the country.

As principal partners of KidsCan, we work with them to make sure that kiwi kids have the essentials, so they have the opportunity for a better future.

Kākāpō Recovery Programme

Kākāpō are a taonga species. Sadly, with just over 200 left, theses nocturnal, flightless parrots sit firmly on the endangered species list.
We work with the Department of Conservation (DOC) and Ngāi Tahu to help fund research and initiatives. The Kākāpō Recovery Programme aims to take the kākāpō off the endangered list and bring them back to their former glory.
