ZERO EMISSION PEST CONTROL
ZERO emission pest control services is something ACES pest control is working towards now for a while.
ACES pest control is now a Carbon Neutral Pest Management company
Climate change is becoming increasingly important to New Zealanders. Recent climate events in 2023 in NZ have underlined the need to reduce carbon emissions.
ACES pest control is now providing services to Auckland in an EV van.
The Van is charged with renewable electricity.
Our spray gear is all battery powered - emission free.
ACES pest control will continue to purchase carbon credit trees from the Trees that count. These will offset the small about of carbon emissions that we currently make trading (couriers etc) .
We will continue to recycle any plastics that we use during trading.
In 2023 we offer ZERO emission pest control services.
TREES THAT COUNT
Planting millions of native trees
At Trees That Count, we love trees. But not just any old trees: Aotearoa’s incredible native trees. We’re an environmental charity bringing together businesses, community, and everyday Kiwis to plant millions of native trees across the motu.
The name says it all: we believe every single native tree counts. Together, we're having an immense positive impact for our environment. Millions of native trees have already been planted, but there's still more to do.
It's easy for New Zealanders to collectively help to plant native trees through our digital platform, which matches donated and gifted native trees to hardworking native restoration projects around the country who are looking for support. Whether it's a $10 donation from an individual or $100,000 from a large business, every dollar—and every native tree—helps our land and our people to thrive.
Trees That Count has partnered with the Department of Conservation Te Papa Atawhai (DOC) to support the planting of more than 100,000 native trees across Aotearoa as part of He Rā Rākau Tītapu – King Charles III Coronation Plantings.
“We are honoured that the Government has chosen to celebrate this occasion in a way that benefits all New Zealanders and we’re very grateful to both the Governor-General and the Office of the Prime Minister for their support of this initiative,” says Robyn Haugh, CEO of Trees That Count.
Prime Minister Chris Hipkins has announced a range of events and activities to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III and the Queen Consort on 6 May at Westminster Abbey.
“I am pleased to announce a donation of $1 million to Trees That Count as New Zealand’s gift to mark the Coronation,” Chris Hipkins said.
“Trees That Count, in partnership with the Department of Conservation, will work with community groups to plant more than 100,000 native trees. The donation will create a living legacy to benefit all New Zealanders, provide more resilience against climate change, and aligns with King Charles’s lifelong interest in environmental conservation.”
“Environmental restoration projects would not be possible without the generous contribution made by volunteers around the country. The Coronation will be a time to acknowledge the immense efforts made by volunteers to improve social cohesion and build stronger, more resilient communities.”
The translation of He Rā Rākau Tītapu is 'a day a sacred tree is planted'. Joe Harawira, the Governor-General’s kaumatua, notes that ‘The trees to be planted will feel the warmth of the moisture in the soil, thereby imbuing the roots of the tree with the essence of life that will transform it into a living treasure for future generations to see, feel, know and understand its place in nature.’
Over the coming months, Trees That Count will announce the native restoration projects throughout New Zealand that will form part of this programme to enhance their existing work by planting and caring for more native trees.
On the weekend of 6 and 7 May, local councils across New Zealand will also plant a ceremonial native tree as part of the wider He Rā Rākau Tītapu – King Charles III Coronation Planting programme. The public are encouraged to attend events in their communities, including a family friendly celebration at the Auckland Domain on Sunday 7 May.
Other ways to mark the Coronation will include the illumination of a number of buildings across New Zealand with purple lights overnight on 6 May, a gun salute by the New Zealand Defence Force in Wellington on 7 May, the renaming of the next New Zealand Royal Honours List to The King’s Birthday and Coronation Honours List 2023, and New Zealand Post’s issue of commemorative stamps and coins.
