Element aims to inspire and guide Kiwis to transform New Zealand into the healthiest, most liveable destination on the planet. Kiwis have indicated in our research that they want to be inspired to change their lives for the better, and become more sustainable, but don’t always have time to find out how to achieve this. Element is responding to this growing need by providing real insight into local and global sustainability, health and business issues.

In addition to premium and standard positions, Element also offers advertisers dedicated, cost-effective advertising environments within the Element Directory.

Element provides an integrated media solution with a permanent digital section on NZ Herald Online - elementmagazine.co.nz - in addition to the print publication.
