Green Initiatives

We back our communities - the places where we work, play and live.

We took on a planting site at Lake Hayes for 3 years and dedicated to not only plant 1,000 trees, but to weed and maintain the site to ensure the best survival rate possible for our native trees.

We recently gathered friends, family, customers and Green Cabs fans to donate support and muscle power to the Wakatipu Reforestation Trust and the Department of Conservation in Queenstown. We sourced and planted over 250 native trees along the shores of Lake Wakatipu; an effort we are very proud of.

That's right - a portion of every fare taken by you, our customers, allows us to directly contribute to our green partners, as well as our own green initiatives, helping us to offset the impact our operation and our fleet have on the environment.

We don't just have a green logo and eco-friendly cars - a portion of every fare taken allows us to support  a number of green initiatives locally, nationally and globally!

Trees for Survival

Trees for Survival are a New Zealand-based environmental education programme who are doing truly remarkable things with our next generations - to educate, involve and engage communities in tree planting, revegetation and biodiversity projects. 

Trees for the Future

We partnered with Trees for the Future in 2007, which was also the same year that we launched. Our partnership is now over ten years old, and our collective trees-planted count is well into the hundreds of thousands.

Through the support of our customers and these two organisations, we have planted more than 350,000 trees since 2007.
