NEC New Zealand is delighted to have partnered with All Heart NZ following our recent office move in Auckland.
When we recently decided to move our office location in Auckland, we needed to strip back on a wide range of office furnishings including desks, chairs, office dividers, and IT equipment.
Thinking sustainably, we simply did not want to put all our unwanted items into landfill.
That’s where All Heart NZ came in.
Who is All Heart NZ?
All Heart NZ partners with corporates to practically redirect and repurpose redundant and unwanted items. Our Reduce partnerships help to further develop the sustainable, ethical and social aspects of procurement and supply chain management.
Their primary focus is on corporate sustainability and community support, something we were keen to get involved with.
To date, All Heart NZ have diverted 2,293,874kg of waste materials from landfill, supporting 297 communities from the funds they have raised – a total of $5,908,408.
Our impact report
Whilst the contribution from our office move is only small, the impact can be widely felt.
In total, working with All Heart NZ, we diverted 3,050kg of waste from the landfill.
Instead, those items were sent out to the communities where they could be put to good use. It was great to hear from the community group who had received our unwanted items:
“We want to thank the corporate who has provided their redundant items to All Heart NZ. For us, these items represent hope and dignity. These items allow us to create living wage employment and an environmentally positive up-cycle solution. We love what we do and appreciate the support All Heart NZ and their corporate partners provide.”
All Heart NZ estimate that the community impact of the items we donated was $7,838 which is measured by a local community being able to reuse, repurpose and resell those items, with 100% of the benefit going to people in need.
