Our Past. Our Future.

We turn big challenges into big opportunities.


Why we are here

The Lever Room is a public benefit company dedicated to improving the health and wellness of people and the planet.

The scientific evidence is clear – drawing down climate change, regenerating nature and eradicating the extremes of poverty must be our immediate priorities. These systemic challenges are connected and we’ve made it our mission to help solve them. Unless we can understand the bigger picture in which our most pressing challenges sit, we will only end up mitigating problems or providing superficial solutions. That means at The Lever Room we take a systems innovation approach to turn big issues into win-win-win outcomes and blended value for people, planet and profit.

What we've achieved already

Formerly known as Rebecca Mills & Co and founded by Rebecca Mills in 2008, The Lever Room's work with entrepreneurs, business leaders and decision makers (in cities and the circular economy) has transformed entire systems. While we have helped people from diverse backgrounds create pathways to meaningful impact, our work has also been instrumental in transforming the way companies and commercial sectors create prosperity.

In the public arena, we have a proven track record of using the science of impact to assist governments and public good foundations to create the evidenced based outcomes they seek.


Formed in 2008, The Lever Room is Aotearoa New Zealand’s most experienced impact consultancy.
