Conventional wisdom says, if you want something done right, it’s best to do it yourself. But with the right team and shared resources, your actions can go twice as far. This is the basis of a new partnership between Nearmap and The Nature Conservancy Australia: two groundbreaking organisations with a passion for forging tangible, positive climate action.

Recognising the powerful potential of partnership, we have teamed up to tackle the climate challenge using our unique pool of expertise, people, and perspective.
With an approach that combines cutting-edge Australian technology with traditional land management techniques of First Nations people, the Nearmap and The Nature Conservancy Australia partnership combines traditional knowledge and innovative technology. By utilising the best of the past and the future, we’re bound to see more positive change.
Nearmap for Good sustainability commitment
Nearmap has launched its sustainability program, Nearmap for Good, aligned to the adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) – in particular goal 11, Sustainable Cities and Communities, and goal 13, Climate Action. As part of this, Nearmap has committed to the Pledge 1% initiative, pledging 1% of product and 1% of time to support goals aligned to the UN SDGs. This partnership with The Nature Conservancy is a significant step towards our goal to combat the impacts of climate change and to create sustainable cities for the future.
About The Nature Conservancy
The battle against climate change is an urgent one that must be fought to save our habitats, health, economy and future — and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) believes it can be won using smart planning, science-based solutions and strong partnerships. In Australia, the TNC team works tirelessly to protect the woodlands and wetlands that are crucial to biodiversity and carbon sequestration. TNC works in partnership with First Nations people caring for Country; for example, to manage fire in a way that more closely resembles tens of thousands of years of traditional burning to achieve net reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and better conservation outcomes. The broader aim is to halt the effects of climate change so communities can enjoy a safer and more equitable future that prioritises the health of our natural world.
