 Canterbury Trails: Leading the Way in Sustainable Tourism

At Canterbury Trails, we're committed to providing unforgettable experiences while minimizing our impact on the environment. As part of our dedication to sustainability, we're proud to announce that we've achieved Carbon Positive status through our partnership with By offsetting our carbon footprint through the planting of native trees, we're taking proactive steps to combat climate change and preserve the natural beauty of New Zealand for future generations.

But our commitment to sustainability doesn't stop there. We've taken significant strides to reduce our environmental footprint in other areas as well. In our efforts to transition to greener transportation options, we've invested in Tesla vehicles for our tours. These electric vehicles not only provide our guests with a luxurious and comfortable ride but also help to reduce emissions and promote cleaner air
in our communities. Electrification of the fleet will continue over the coming year.

In addition to our transportation initiatives, we've also made a conscious decision to eliminate all single use plastics from our operations, wherever possible. By implementing reusable and eco-friendly alternatives, such as biodegradable or recyclable packaging, using eco friendly cleaning products on our vehicles and reducing water use, we're working to minimize plastic pollution and protect marine ecosystems.

But our commitment to sustainability isn't just about reducing our environmental impact—it's also about giving back to our community and supporting social initiatives. We actively collaborate with local organizations and charities to promote conservation efforts and foster sustainable tourism practices.

At Canterbury Trails, we believe that responsible tourism is the key to preserving the natural wonders of New Zealand while simultaneously providing enriching experiences for our guests. By prioritizing sustainability in everything we do, we're proud to be leading the way towards a greener, more environmentally conscious future for tourism in Canterbury and beyond. Join us on a journey of
discovery, adventure, and sustainability, and experience the beauty of New Zealand in a way that leaves a positive impact on the planet.
