17 Nov 17: Sign up to NZ Tourism Sustainability Commitment

TIA is inviting every New Zealand tourism business to commit to creating a sustainable tourism industry, with this week’s launch of the New Zealand Tourism Sustainability Commitment.

The Tourism Sustainability Commitment establishes eight Goals for the tourism industry to attain by 2025. Individual businesses are being invited to adopt 14 Commitments designed to support the industry to reach the Goals. Find out more details on the new website www.sustainabletourism.nz.

TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts says the Vision is to see New Zealand ‘Leading the World in Sustainable Tourism’.

“We want a New Zealand where our economy, people and the environment are better off because tourism exists. 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.”

More than 50 tourism businesses from around the country have already adopted the Commitments and TIA Hotel Sector regional chairs have set a goal to have the majority of TIA Hotel members sign up.

Sign up now to the Tourism Sustainability Commitment and adopt 14 Commitments that will ensure our industry will achieve our goals.
