Read more below about our sustainability initiatives and goals that support a better future for all:

7 Million Trees Planted

Since 2016, Comvita has planted trees in New Zealand to enhance biodiversity and restore native ecosystems. Throughout New Zealand, regenerative agriculture programs (including areas planted by Comvita) have prioritized planting Manuka trees in damaged or depleted land areas. For farmers, planting Manuka trees helps maintain the soil. Near waterways, the Manuka tree also helps prevent erosion, with, in one study*, 65% fewer storm-related landslides over a 10-year period. It’s all in the name of creating more pesticide-free, wild and untouched spaces for both plants and bees to thrive. Learn more about the importance of the beloved Manuka tree here. (PDF)
