Home to mountains, beaches, lakes and awe-inspiring landscapes right on our doorstep, there’s no country quite like New Zealand. Our beautiful landscape attracts both domestic and international visitors, who travel to witness the beauty of Aotearoa’s unique and diverse natural landscape. As a tourism affiliated business, it’s important that we all do our part to ensure positive long-term contributions for the development and sustainability of our booming tourism industry.
Crowne Plaza hotels across New Zealand, including Crowne Plaza Auckland, Crowne Plaza Queenstown and Crowne Plaza Christchurch are proud to be a part of 500+ New Zealand businesses signed up to the Tourism Sustainability Commitment.
This initiative sees New Zealand tourism businesses uniting together, to achieve the vision of creating a sustainable tourism industry. Tourism sustainability is not only related to the environment and in the hands of the tourism businesses themselves, but it’s also about inspiring sustainable journeys for the visitors, host community, and making positive contributions to the beautiful place we call home.
“The New Zealand Tourism Sustainability Commitment aims to see every New Zealand tourism business committed to sustainability by 2025 – our Vision is Leading the World in Sustainable Tourism. To deliver on this, we must achieve ambitious economic goals while sharing the overwhelming benefits with supportive host communities, contributing to restoring, protecting and enhancing our natural environment, and continuing to be a high-quality destination of choice for domestic and international travellers”
