What we do
All Heart NZ partners with corporates to practically REDIRECT & REPURPOSE their redundant and unwanted items. Our REDUCE partnerships help to further develop the sustainable, ethical and social aspects of procurement and supply chain management.
Why we do it
We are a registered charitable trust.
We support partner organisations to reduce poverty, increase access to education and provide wellbeing services. We believe that improving the ways we both source and dispose of corporate goods can positively impact our planet and the quality of life of the people who help produce, reuse and dispose of it.
He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata “What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.”
We achieve a circular economy solution for unwanted corporate furniture and equipment.
We have an ‘out of the box’ approach to thinking sustainably and supporting communities.
We are a ‘one stop’ zero-waste sustainability solution to REDIRECT, REDUCE & REPURPOSE for all redundant corporate stuff.
Our Theory of Change
By raising the sustainability standards and practices of the top 0.5% of businesses* in Aotearoa New Zealand, we are changing the behaviour of 60% of our workforce and indirectly influencing their families and friends – growing the movement for a more sustainable society.
*By the number of employees: 2688 businesses employ 1,127,000 people.
From the Founder
In 2015 whilst walking out of a friend’s accounting business, I noticed one of his offices stacked high with computers, desks, chairs and other unwanted goods. That struck a chord with me; how many times during my corporate career did I see similar goods simply thrown away? How many times did I leave an unwanted phone, laptop or tablet lying in a drawer? Thanks to my years of social sector experience, I saw those redundant goods through fresh eyes; they were no longer a waste of space, rather a pathway to bringing about social and environmental change. All Heart NZ has developed over time to include our Repurpose and Reduce partnerships. As you learn more about our heart, I hope you will be encouraged.
