New Zealand partnership supports tourism industry environmental sustainability

New Zealand partnership supports tourism industry environmental sustainability
August 12, 2019

A new partnership between Tourism Industry Aotearoa and Enviro-Mark Solutions will support tourism operators to measure, manage and reduce their climate and environmental impacts.

With Enviro-Mark Solutions the leading provider of environmental certification in New Zealand, the partnership will see TIA members new to the Enviro-Mark®, CEMARS® or carboNZeroCertTM certification programmes benefit from a reduced fee.

Enviro-Mark Solutions will also support both TIA and TRENZ, New Zealand’s biggest annual international tourism showcase, to achieve carboNZero certification. TRENZ is managed by TIA on behalf of the Tourism Industry New Zealand Trust.

TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts says the partnership with Enviro-Mark Solutions is exciting for TIA and the 1200 tourism operators who have signed up to the New Zealand Tourism Sustainability Commitment, advising “along with our members, TIA is on the journey to becoming more sustainable. The TSC promotes economic, community, visitor and environmental sustainability, and Enviro-Mark will be able to help our industry achieve the TSC’s environmental goals.”

Advising that the organisation offers robust internationally recognised environmental programmes suitable for organisations at every stage of their environmental sustainability journey, Enviro-Mark Solutions General Manager - Sales and Marketing, Josephine Rudkin-Binks, adds “you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Having a robust baseline measurement is essential to be able to track and reduce emissions. Certification then helps you communicate to your stakeholders and provides proof of your success.

“We are really excited to partner with TIA. We look forward to helping the industry step up and adopt international best practice which is so important to the planet and New Zealand’s low carbon future.”
