Introduction

Many businesses are contributing to restoring and protecting the environment.

In New Zealand around 4,000 native species are threatened or at risk of extinction. Every business can play a vital role in helping to restore and protect nature.

Toitū te marae a Tāne, toitū te marae a Tangaroa, toitū te tangata.

If the land is well and the sea is well, the people will thrive.
