The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment commissioned Pragmatica to review the Envirolink scheme and inform them of how well the scheme operates, and whether it achieved its intended outcomes and provided value for money.
This was the first review of the scheme since it commenced in 2005. The results of the review were positive and we rated the scheme very good overall. The review also provided evidence that the scheme makes a worthwhile and valuable contribution in supporting eligible councils to engage with and use environmental science and support uptake by users. The report’s recommendations will inform future funding decisions relating to Envirolink.
