Why Mana Tiaki Eco Certification
The tourism industry is uniquely placed to be the leaders in a developing a more sustainable approach to tourism.
These certification standards have been developed in conjunction with key stakeholders in tourism, government, conservation and community and are in line with the guidelines set out by the Mohonk Agreement (2000).
Mana Tiaki Eco-Certification programme is intended to run parallel to the existing tourism accreditation standards and support and promote those businesses with more robust environmental policies and practices than standard accredited properties.
This certification will incorporate the consideration of biodiversity, solid waste management, water and sanitation, energy efficiency and other ecosystem impacts into the accreditation process. This will add value to the overall quality assurance for the industry.
