Sustainable Initiatives Fund Trust [SIFT]

WHO WE ARE?

Sustainable Initiatives Fund is a Canterbury-based publicly funded charitable trust that provides vital financial assistance to innovative waste minimisation projects meeting our criteria.

The Sustainable Initiatives Fund Trust is a registered charitable entity in terms of the Charities Act 2005 (Registration No. CC22773). For more information about the Trust visit the Charities Register or go to our Trust Team page for details of our Trustees.


WHAT DO WE DO?

We fund innovative research-based recycling, waste prevention and waste minimisation projects that will divert waste from Canterbury landfills and from the environment. Our goal is for these projects and the technologies involved to become commercially viable.

SIFT takes a proactive approach to funding projects by identifying key areas that are wasteful for industry or where recycling is not possible (e.g. electronic waste) and targeting them for project funding.

TIP OF THE MONTH

Check out this Stuff article on one of SIFT’s investment partners, Mr Box. Managing Director Dion Kerr has created an innovative, fully recyclable system for the boxing of concrete foundations. So not only is this system reducing the amount of toxic treated timber to landfill but it is also more cost effective and quicker than the standard method.  This has to be good news for the rebuild in Christchurch!
