What does it mean to be an eco lodge?
Awaroa Lodge is a contributor to the Nelson-Tasman Sustainable Tourism Charter. The Nelson-Tasman Sustainable Tourism Charter is a regionally defined vision of what sustainable tourism means for local tourism businesses. The key themes of the charter incorporate environmental, social, cultural and economic factors of sustainability.
The charter recognises the fact that a business must be financially viable, and helps identify simple, practical and achievable actions to improve sustainability and deliver long-term financial savings.
Awaroa Lodge is also involved with Green Globe 21 environmental standards. This is a world wide recognised standard for Eco Tourism and is an important aspect of the way we market Awaroa.
Awaroa Lodge is committed to the ethos of ecological and bio-organic sustainability
