Canon New Zealand has announced the winners of its Canon Environmental Grants Programme where inspiring projects receive grants-in-kind to help achieve their sustainability goals.
The Motutapu Restoration Trust, Hobsonville School and the Otanewainuku Kiwi Trust have each been awarded $5,000 worth of Canon equipment of their choice.
The projects were awarded based on the positive impact on the environment, the uniqueness of their projects, and a demonstration on how Canon products can make a difference to their cause.
Kim Conner, managing director of Canon New Zealand says the range of community-led projects being championed by people across New Zealand is remarkable.
“From communities working together to protect kiwi, kōkako, kereru, bats, penguins and bees, to schools and charities raising awareness and educating the importance of looking after our coastlines, rivers and trees, we have been truly inspired by these amazing causes,” she says.
The winning projects include:
“These incredible award recipients are a true reflection of Canon’s corporate philosophy of Kyosei, which translates to ‘working together for the common good’,” says Conner.
“Canon feels extremely honoured to be able to support these worthy organisations and further amplify their projects through our range of specialised products."
