Fundraising for the future! Greenback is taking real action against climate change and needs your support. Let's plant trees together!
We're creating a reward, backed by new tree planting in New Zealand.
We're trying to raise money to establish the Greenback - a reward token better linking business and consumers and incentivising reduction in emissions, helping New Zealand to transition towards becoming a world leading, carbon neutral economy. We're all really used to rewards like Flybuys, giving you redeemable points for spending - we want to create the Greenback, rewarding you for reducing your carbon footprint, partnering with business to plant trees and offering you discounts for your Greenbacks on their sustainable products.
Money you donate currently goes on developing our education programme, co-ordinating planting projects with existing tree-planting organisations and sending out free native seeds across New Zealand so that everyone can start planting for the future now. We've engaged with landowners and are ready to start planting out a pilot project in July 2019 in a couple of exciting spots restoring native wetlands and forests. Sign up to stay updated with our progress and we're always on the lookout for Good Humans who want to get involved and organise local planting events in their community.
We're developing a mobile photo monitoring app which integrates with our Greenback platform to make it easy and transparent for you to see your emission reducing behaviour linked with actual trees growing in the ground that were planted as a result and the business that co-funded that planting.
We think that's something really exciting and really hope you feel the same as us. The time is now to action climate change, lead the world and plant some trees!
Use of Funds:
Prototyping and development of the platform to measure emissions, offer improvements and calculate rewards. Development of auditing technology to measure outcomes. Partnerships with relevant organisations to put new trees in the ground under the programme.

Greenback was formed in late 2018 after research into crypto currency, sustainability and deciding that the time is now to act to place New Zealand at the forefront of climate action.
Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Greenback.
