About Korimako

We catalyse sustainable change by providing our clients with independent advice and helping them to develop and deliver projects with sustainable outcomes.  Our mission is to deliver change towards more sustainable, equitable and resilient communities.

Our team are all experts in strategic planning, sustainability, project management and one or more technical areas including: sustainable economies, energy, transport, water, waste, buildings, economics, community engagement and international development. 

We have experience working in a range of different communities and with our global network we are able to draw in relevant experience from around the world. 

Korimako operates as a collective of individual professionals and partner organisations who work for Korimako on a project-by-project basis.  This means that for each project we assemble the best possible team to meet our clients’ needs.  The Korimako team's wide experience means that we can work on a broad spectrum of sustainability projects, but we specialise in strategy and project development. 

We also champion and develop new projects to harness opportunities for sustainability in our communities.  Korimako is a social enterprise and our profits are reinvested into delivering positive social and environmental outcomes in line with our mission.
