Find resources to help your business be more sustainable.

Manukau business events

Businesses are invited to go 'behind the scenes' and see the actions others are taking to protect the Manukau Harbour, at a series of events being organised by the Manukau Harbour Forum. 

By getting businesses together to learn firsthand, the forum is hoping to build a network of industry leaders who can help local businesses prevent pollution at their own sites and improve water quality in the Manukau Harbour.

The first event for 2016 will take place at Fonterra, Takanini on Thursday 28 April.

For more information or to register your interest, email the Manukau Harbour Forum.
