We want our efforts to have a positive impact on others. We want every transaction with our clients to result in us improving our planet.

Lightwire can’t change the world, but we can be a meaningful and well intentioned part of a bigger picture, one where businesses realise that they must give back to a planet with finite resources instead of getting lost in the pursuit of infinite returns.

Lightwire believes that it needs to play a role in improving the quality of life of staff, clients and all the people we are yet to meet.

We believe that the most effective way we can achieve these outcomes, in a way that scales up as we grow, is to pledge to plant a tree every time we sell an internet connection to a client.

In order to do this, we are partnering with Greenfleet who will plant the trees on our behalf. To demonstrate our transparency and accountability, Lightwire Business undergoes independent audits, which include the processing of any donations to the charities and partners that we work with.

We will take great pride in keeping anyone who will listen up to date with how many trees we have planted on behalf of our clients and staff, so keep tuned to our Twitter and LinkedIn feeds for updates as we get started.

Lightwire has had a positive role in the community for years, but as we continue to grow, we feel that we need to set our sights to have a wider focus, one that provides returns for all the communities we now work within across New Zealand and Australia.

As always, a big thanks goes to our clients and partners whose continued support allows us to grow and make efforts such as this.

About Greenfleet:

Greenfleet is Oceania’s most respected source of biodiverse carbon offsets. As a non-profit organisation, Greenfleet is dedicated to connecting people with real climate action. Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted more than 8.7 million native trees across 425 biodiverse forests in Australia and New Zealand to offset carbon emissions.

As they grow, these native forests capture carbon pollution from the atmosphere, provide vital habitat to native wildlife, conserve biodiversity and generate resilience to climate change in the
landscape.
