Sustainable Environment Strategy

At Whangarei TOP 10 Holiday Park, we work hard to support our environment by undertaking a number of actions. We understand that all businesses create environmental and social impact through their activities. Ours is no exception. Many of these you will not see, but some you may notice.

We have developed the following environmental policy which is based on a commitment to improving our environmental performance across all areas of our business practice. Our sustainability will be an ongoing journey which will improve with time and experience, and we welcome your support and feedback regarding this initiative.

We undertake to:

reduce our demand on energy by:
  • installing low energy light bulbs in at least 80% of our premises
  • using energy-efficient timers and motion sensor equipment on exterior and interior lighting
  • replacing hot water storage cylinders with an on-demand hot water supply, using gas califonts
  • offering you a towel and linen change agreement, to reduce energy and water use
  • buying products locally to reduce transport emissions
  • choosing energy-efficient models when we upgrade appliances
  • offering local walking and cycling guides to local attractions

reduce our waste by:

  • giving you the opportunity to recycle your rubbish
  • reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, by separating it for recycling
  • offering composting facilities for organic waste
  • purchasing products with minimal and preferably biodegradable packaging, buying in bulk, and using returnable containers where possible
  • offering online options for daily news
  • printing necessary emails only, using recycled paper

conserve water by:

  • installing devices in taps and shower heads to reduce water volume
  • installing dual flush toilets, and sensors on urinals
  • using mulch on our gardens

reduce pollution by:

  • using biodegradable and non-toxic cleaning products and systems (Ha Ra products and systems)
  • installing timers on exterior lighting, for less disturbance at night
  • sourcing and purchasing our products locally, to reduce carbon emissions from transport
  • regularly tuning our vehicles to reduce carbon emissions
  • choosing a local Printing Company, which uses sustainable practices (vegetable inks and recycled paper), for our printed brochures

encourage conservation by:

  • supporting wildlife conservation by contributing annually to the Whangarei Native Bird Recovery Centre and Backyard Kiwi
  • planting native trees and shrubs, to encourage birdlife, and reduce the need for irrigation
  • offering guests the opportunity to experience our natural environment by informing and encouraging them to take a walk in the city’s largest Scenic Reserve, which directly adjoins our property.

participate in our local community by:

  • donating supplementary products or furniture to local charities and schools
  • making land available for the establishment of a local Transition Towns Community Garden
  • contributing a portion of profits to the upkeep of the Community Garden
  • sponsoring local initiatives; like the BMX club’s annual competition, and Telecom For Schools
  • volunteering at a local school to support its Literacy Support Programme for low progress readers
  • buying locally produced art
  • always offering employment to local residents first
  • encouraging our staff to commit to our environmental practices
