Royal Botanic Garden Sponsorship

Preserving the Australian landscape

Our partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens has been in place for more than a decade, giving us the opportunity to make a positive environmental impact over the longer term. 

In 2013, we helped to establish the Australian PlantBank at the Australian Botanic Garden in Mount Annan, and our continued sponsorship of this initiative is a vital part of our effort to preserve the landscape across NSW and the ACT. 

Ongoing funding from TransGrid helps the Royal Botanic Gardens to gather and store plant seeds in a protected environment so that scientists can use them for research, reference and conservation purposes in future. Storing these seeds through PlantBank serves to extend the longevity of many native species, which would otherwise be at risk of extinction.
