Low Carbon Challenge


Eco-friendly surfboards, fast food oil converted into biodiesel and a social enterprise for monthly periods were among finalists selected for a chance to access up to $45,000 in match funding.  Six businesses had beaten dozens of entrants to be named as finalists for the fourth annual Wellington Low Carbon Challenge. The challenge, founded in partnership with Wellington City Council, is for existing businesses, startups, or new ideas which reduce the city’s carbon emissions with environmentally-friendly enterprise solutions or alternatives
