Qualmark Green – The Enhanced Environmental Criteria

As the official mark of quality for New Zealand tourism, Qualmark has responded to what visitors want when they come to New Zealand. Qualmark has implemented enhanced environmental criteria into the existing annual assessments. This change is part of the New Zealand tourism industry's ongoing commitment to looking after New Zealand for future generations to enjoy—100% Pure New Zealand experiences are assured by Qualmark.

All businesses that display Qualmark star grading or endorsed logo are assessed on their environmental performance. There are minimum requirements Qualmark businesses must complete before they can use the silver logo. Minimum requirements include basic environmental practices and completing an environmental review of their business. For a Qualmark business to be displaying the additional green Enviro-logo they will be performing well in this area and be engaging in activities that include:

Energy Efficiency

Reducing the amount of electricity, gas and fuel used by the business.

Waste Management

Reducing and managing waste produced by the business (including the philosophy of 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink').

Water Conservation

Using water wisely through conservation and management.

Environmental Conservation

The business is helping to protect New Zealand's natural environment by contributing to conservation causes or participating in a conservation activity.

Community Support

The business provides support in the community in which they are located by helping out at community events or supporting community groups and charities.

Finding top performing Qualmark Green businesses is easy. Look for the green Qualmark Enviro-logos on websites, online listings and in other promotional material such as brochures and advertising.
