Corporate Statements

Below are some statements from our corporate sponsors, explaining why they choose to support Te Ipukarea Society:

Cook Islands Trading Corporation (CITC)
CITC is committed to helping build a more sustainable future by partnering with organisations such as TIS to encourage recycling, reducing our carbon footprint and supporting initiatives that will protect our environment. It has taken us too long to recognize how much damage we have been doing to our environment but if we all make a small change in our actions, the impact will be huge. CITC became a Gold member to work with and support TIS to promote positive outcomes to environmental problems.

Bank of the Cook Islands (BCI)
BCI’s Board of Directors, managers and staff take environment and sustainability very seriously. At the heart of our BCI culture are people, performance and plant. In this respect BCI adopts a workplace free of single use plastics and subscribes to efforts to “Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”. We are honoured to continue our support as Gold member with TIS to contribute to a better place for our people.

Our main reason for sponsoring TIS is concern regarding pollution (mainly of the lagoons) and the waste management problems here in the Cook Islands. In the 23 years I have been here there has definitely been an improvement in the water quality in the lagoons and TIS do a good job with awareness and actions in this regard.
