SustainabilityProgramme for Hauraki Coromandel

Change is happening for the better, by choice and global influence, from governments and consumers. At last, we are committed to a path that honours our region’s reputation.

It is our organisation's vision that Tourism enriches life for locals and visitors, contributing directly to the protection and enhancement of our cultural and natural environment.

By joining us in this vision, your business can demonstrate how important our environment is by reducing waste, leading the way with carbon free actions and helping biodiversity in Hauraki Coromandel thrive. Having committed, people will trust that visiting your place will help our place be Forever good for your soul.

We’ve created a programme that goes beyond greenwashing to something that’s truly sustainable. 

Our sustainability programme tackles 3 goals, with actions, designed to help your business progress.

By helping Hauraki Coromandel be forever good for your soul, straight away your business will commit to step 1, allowing you to easily progress to step 2.

The Ambassador Programme is the only step that requires time away from your business (a proposed 3-hour workshop in your local town). When you’re ready you can choose to advance your commitment to Step 3.

Your Journey Starts Here

How Your Visitors Can Participate

Our respect for nature and our beautiful environment unites us in The Coromandel, it’s why we are here.

It’s a place where nature and people connect, a place that gives back, that is forever good for your soul.

The responsibility to take care quickly becomes a passion that is infectious, with a rising momentum that will tip the balance in favour of our voiceless native species. Only then will nature start to thrive, as locals truly appreciate what a thing of beauty this place is. And visitors will long to return, to recharge their soul.
