30,000 trees to mark 30 years
On 1st August 2018, Honda celebrated our 30 year anniversary in New Zealand. We are very proud of this milestone and to celebrate we decided to fund the planting of 30,000 native trees over this next year.
It's a fitting way for us to say thank you New Zealand for all the loyal support, and continues the work of our Honda Treefund. This year our 30,000 trees will be planted in a number of ways.
We are giving a native tree gift to each new Honda owner, the first time they buy a Honda from one of our Honda Agents, whether it is a new or used Honda.
We have also committed to an exciting project in Kaiapoi, north of Christchurch, an area hit hard by the Canterbury earthquakes. We will be planting a Honda forest of 2.5 hectares, as part of the Kaiapoi Regeneration Project.
Honda staff planting days were held in key areas during the 2018 planting season and we will be organising Honda customer planting days for the 2019 planting season.
To plant the balance of the 30,000 trees, Honda has partnered with Trees That Count – an organisation that has built a unique community and marketplace, connecting native tree planters with funders. To see the great progress we have made in achieving our goal download the latest report.
