In 2020 Northpine launched a new funding programme, called Stronger Communities, to help the people of Bream Bay.
Grants will be made from applications received each quarter. Applications for the next round of grants close on 16 August 2021 and will be announced in early September.
Northpine operates its Waipu sawmill within the terms of strict Resource Consents (issued in 2005 and 2014) that cover discharge to air and use of chemicals. These consents, overseen by local and regional authorities, are regularly monitored by a Community Liaison Committee.
Northpine is genuinely committed to improving the quality of local community life by helping a wide variety of activities, events and causes through donations and sponsorship. As a major employer in Bream Bay, the company gives generously and often to local arts, education, heritage, sport, recreation and community services.
