News story
Friday 12 Jul 2019

Waitematā Local Board and ATEED are looking for 10 businesses wanting to become sustainability STARS in the Waitematā area of Auckland (which the city centre is a part of). 

Targeted specifically at small to medium-sized businesses, the Waitemata Business Sustainability Kick Start Programme is designed to help businesses save money and put sustainability ideas into practice. 

They are currently inviting applications, with a view to accepting a maximum of ten businesses to take part in the programme at a subsidised cost of $500.

As advocates for a sustainablezero-waste city centre, we are really supportive of any initiative that helps businesses with their sustainability goals and we encourage any eligible city centre businesses to apply.

In a nutshell, here's what the programme offers:

  • One-on-one coaching
  • A site survey
  • Workshops on hot sustainability topics
  • A personalised sustainability action plan for each business  
  • Tools to help each business benchmark and manage their environmental footprint.

The programme begins in September 2019 and will run until March 2020. 

How to apply

Interested businesses need to register their interest in the programme within the next week by 5pm, on Friday 26th of July.

You will need to describe your business - its size and what environmental improvements you would like to work on over the next six months. You can find more information here.
