Mindful Money is a consumer-facing charity that aims to make money a force for good. A starting point is transparency.

We realise taking climate action often ends up in the ‘too hard’ basket due to all the other demands of running a business. That’s why we created the Climate Action Toolbox. The free online Toolbox makes it easy for you to create your own emissions reduction plan and includes step-by-step guides.
The extreme weather events over the last month have been devastating for countless people and businesses in the North Island. The people affected have been very much in our hearts and minds. We want to use the power of our network to help. That encompasses practical help right now as well as using our influence to push for the long-term change we so urgently need.
Kiwi comedian and TV personality Te Radar has taken drastic action to reverse the effects of climate change in the Pacific by attempting to # Sue the Sea.

Many organisations are making commitments to act on climate. Some are reducing the carbon footprint of their products, office operations, transport and suppliers.

That’s why we’ve invested in the new Climate Venture Capital Fund.
The Sustainable Business Network has been working directly on nature regeneration since 2014. We’ve helped to fund the planting of over 800,000 native plants and trees, working with partners all over the country. In recent years, we’ve funded nature based employment for over 190 people. This is rejuvenating waterways and landscapes and transforming people’s lives.
