Conservation Volunteers has a long and proud history of practical environmental partnerships with corporate New Zealand as well as government and community groups. These partnerships allow us to tackle important environmental and wildlife conservation projects. We believe that working in long-term and meaningful partnerships focused on community involvement achieves practical conservation outcomes.

CVNZ has long-standing and very successful relationships with a wide-range of corporate partners, e.g. Rio Tinto, Pernod Ricard, Mondelēz  International, HSBC and Mobil Oil New Zealand. Our partnerships typically include financial and in-kind support for the organization or current projects, as well as corporate employee involvement in projects. Long term commitment is crucial in making positive change to the environment, and we are delighted to say that many of our corporate partners have been with us for numerous years. It is our goal to treat each partnership individually. To do this, we strive to assist the corporate sector in meeting their social and environmental responsibility objectives in ways that actively involve their employees and the wider community while also addressing important environmental issues.

Our ability to involve volunteers in important environment projects is dependent on our partners who support us. This makes it essential for us to work together and we welcome conversations to explore opportunities to partner with you!
