HSBC has been a partners of CVNZ since 2018. HSBC sponsorship is not tied to a particular project or programme but allows CVNZ to decide where and when funding is most needed. The majority of this funding is spent on running volunteer events across Auckland and Wellington for HSBC staff and for our local communities. HSBC staff are active supporters of our projects and often volunteer both on HSBC team events and as part of our larger community events. We regularly run team building events for HSBC staff who also regularly take part in our annual corporate challenges such as our World Environment Day Tree Planting Challenge.
Thanks to funding from HSBC, we have had the opportunity to engage 500 volunteers who have planted almost 5,500 native trees and shrubs, removed 8,500 m2 of invasive weeds and removed 553kg of rubbish from our waterways. We look forward to many more years of partnership on our restoration projects.
