Who Are We?

We are a group of Waikato citizens, from all walks of life and political persuasions. We wish to advocate for and endorse suitable candidates in elections at local, regional and national levels, who align with the principles and practices of sustainability.


What is our Mission?

Our mission is to ensure we get the elected representatives that the city and the region deserve, representatives who are not single issue focussed. We want elected representatives who can assess a range of issues rationally and make decisions based on sound evidence, enhancing our region and nation’s sustainability in the near and intergenerational future.


Assessing Candidates

Sustainable Waikato undertakes an assessment of candidates/policies for an upcoming local body or general election. Our assessment is based on a rigorous examination of candidates/policies, including analysis of track records and invited responses from candidates/parties to a questionnaire.
