CLIMATE ACTION FOR INDIVIDUALS

Make changes to reduce your emissions

How you can make a difference 

  • Learn more about your carbon emissions with a carbon footprint calculator, such as CarbonClick 

  • Simple steps such as carpooling to work or using mass transit can help reduce your carbon footprint. 

  • Reach out to local community groups for ways to help in your area

  • Follow our tips to reduce your impact

  • Change banks: ANZ, ASB, BNZ, and Westpac are helping to keep the fossil fuel industry afloat by lending and investing billions of our savings in coal, oil and gas companies that knowingly cause the climate crisis.

    Find out if your bank is supporting climate criminals, and switch to a Fossil Free bank through 350 Aotearoa Banks Table!

  • Invest ethically, including your KiwiSaver.  Most people want to invest their money ethically. However, billions of dollars in KiwiSaver funds are being invested in fossil fuels. Check what your money is funding and see how easy it is to me an agent of good, by investing ethically. 

    Mindful Money aims is to make your money a force for good while earning a healthy return at the same time.
