Wellington schools can now get help to empower kids to recycle and reduce the waste schools send to landfills. Your Sustainable School, launched today by Associate Environment Minister Eugenie Sage, is a programme to reduce the waste produced in primary and intermediate schools and improve school recycling.
The Budget 2018 announced more funding to help people create warm, dry, healthy homes, with $142 million to help pay for insulation and heating. Sustainability Trust Chief Executive Phil Squire explains more, including how to check if you're eligible to get this funding.
It's official - 50% insulation subsidies for landlords will run out June 30, 2018 and next year's Warmer Kiwi Homes will not include rental subsidies. Sustainability Trust Chief Executive Philip Squire urges landlords to act now, to avoid missing up to $2,500 towards insulation per property.

Whether your team won or not, we’ve got a new government that’s going to make some changes. Our chief executive Philip Squire reflects on what that might mean for our work in environment, healthy housing and social equity.
With a clear election result a couple of weeks away, we don’t yet know what the next government will be doing for environment. So it seems a good time to talk about ways you can do your bit to care for your environment right now – regardless of who ends up in power.
For the last few months it has only been landlords that have been able to access subsidies on insulation for homes. But after slow take-up by landlords, the Government has opened it up to everyone with a Community Services Card.
Here at Sustainability Trust we do our best to walk the talk and limit our carbon footprint. That's why we're now offsetting the emissions we're responsible for in carrying out our work.
