Your Carbon Neutral Holiday
Carbon Neutral Holidays - The first for a New Zealand hunting & fishing guiding outfitter!
From 2010 clients visiting us for a holiday from anywhere in the world can be rest assured that they will be doing so in a manner that is carbon neutral or better! We have generously calculated the carbon footprint of your travel and stay with us for a week long hunting or fishing experience in New Zealand and have calculated how many New Zealand native trees we need to plant to offset your travel. Not only will we purchase the trees and provide the land, but we have some great helpers to plant them!
You can now book with us and have the peace of mind that your holiday will not only be better than carbon neutral, but will benefit the planet and New Zealand's biodiversity. These are the environments we love to recreate within, we should ensure their future as best we can. Backcountry New Zealand is working towards achieving its 'CarboNZero status' through a measure, manage and mitigate process.
Measure: measuring greenhouse gas emissions raises awareness of climate change impacts and identifies opportunities to manage and reduce emissions.
Manage: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is good for the atmosphere and good for business. It requires us to make changes to the way that we manage energy, water, waste and biodiversity. In taking up the challenge to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, you are setting out on a sustainability journey that will bring many other benefits.
Mitigate: Offsetting the remaining unavoidable emissions creates funding that is invested in projects such as native forest regeneration and renewable energy generation.
