BTW is proud to have a rich history and strong connection with Taranaki and Waikato communities. We are both a vital contributor to, and a recipient of regional support and firmly believe that as a business operating across these regions we have a role to play in the protection and growth of our cultural identity, environment and youth.
We actively support a number of programmes and causes through grant making, sponsorship and by contributing volunteer work hours.
Recently our team took part in a community planting day, re-planting native trees on the Kawhia sand dunes.
Tainui Kawhia Incorporation (TKI) have made a large area along the Kawhia harbour margin at Takapuwahia available for restoration of a coastal forest. This collaborative project is part of the Coastal Buffer Trials which will determine which species grow well and provide the best protection to the inland pine forest of this area. With thousands of coastal grasses, shrubs and trees to plant it required a huge team effort – but many hands, made light work this July, as BTW joined others in helping to restore a native ecosystem and stabilise the land here.
