Achieving Environmentally Sustainable Tourism

What It Looks Like:

Tourism strongly contributes to protecting, restoring and enhancing New Zealand's natural environment and biodiversity.

Business Commitments

The Environmental Commitments suggest practical actions that tourism businesses can do to benefit the environment: restoring nature, reducing carbon use and minimising, and ultimately eliminating, waste.


10. Restoring Nature: Contribute to protecting and enhancing Aotearoa New Zealand's environment, including water, biodiversity, landscapes and clean air.

11. Carbon Reduction: Act urgently to contribute to Aotearoa New Zealand's transition to a net zero carbon economy.

12. Eliminating Waste: Take responsibility for the entire life cycle of products and services we use and ultimately eliminate the waste associated with these.
