Century Yuasa Batteries is proud to continue its support for the Million Meters streams project. Million Metres stream projects is a non-profit project set up to restore the health of New Zealand waterways.
All freshwater scientists agree that riparian planting is vital to the health of New Zealand's freshwater ecosystems. Plants filter toxic runoff, prevent sediment washing into water, and cool the water by shading it, so aquatic creatures can survive.
- 44% of New Zealand’s monitored lakes are so polluted virtually nothing can survive in them;
- 62% of lowland rivers are so polluted with pathogens its unsafe to swim in them;
- 74% of freshwater fish species are now classified as ‘threatened’.
Century Yuasa’s partnership has been going for over 4 year with Century contributing to 10,747 trees planted over 2098 metres. We are a proud supporter of this initiative as we look to help keep the sustainability of New Zealand's environment.
