What we do

We identify quality projects and provide impact reporting. We have different packages of support that can be tailored to your business.
How we can help you to go circular
Aotearoa New Zealand’s waterways are in crisis. People are working to turn this around by replanting the banks of our waterways. Planting filters pollutants, provides habitat for native species and sequesters carbon dioxide. Million Metres makes it easy for businesses to invest in quality restoration projects. These projects: improve stream health, enhance biodiversity, and create jobs. Projects need investment for plants and materials, coordination and labour. We identify projects that are a good fit for your business. We provide quality reporting so you can share your impact. We have different packages of support that offer a range of benefits and can be tailored to your business. Million Metres has trusted partners and a proven track record. Since 2012, $2M+ raised for 70+ planting projects. Since 2020, we have provided $5M to 13 partners to create nature-based jobs in response to Covid-19.
