Our Commitment to Sustainability
Here at Helicopters Nelson we are fortunate to be based in one of New Zealand’s most stunning natural environments. In the Tasman Region we have three amazingly rich and diverse National Parks – Abel Tasman National Park, Nelson Lakes National Park and Kahurangi National Park. In neighbouring Marlborough we regularly fly to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, and on the West Coast we have the wild majesty of Wharariki and Farewell Spit. Every day we are thankful for this natural environment, and we are committed to playing our part in its protection and conservation for future generations.
We will meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
We see sustainability not as a stand-alone activity, but as an integral element of everything we do here at Helicopters Nelson. We know that working in a sustainable manner is an ongoing journey that will improve with time, experience and working with others. By striving to protect and enhance the natural environment we work in, our aim is to continue to reduce our environmental footprint to ensure that our beautiful region is protected for future generations.
As an official member of Tourism Industry Aotearoa we are proud to be part of the New Zealand Tourism Sustainability Commitment, which an aim to see every NZ tourism business committed to sustainability by 2025.
We also adhere to the Tiaki Promise, which is a commitment to care for New Zealand for now and for future generations. You can also play your part in protecting our beautiful environment by pledging your support at Tiaki Promise.
We are proud to be the recipients of a Qualmark Gold Award, which recognises the best sustainable tourism businesses in New Zealand, with the delivery of exceptional customer experiences an integral part of everything they do.
