Conservation and sustainability in action at Ara Roa

Our accommodation business has developed the following environmental policy.  This is based on a strong commitment to improving our environmental performance across all aspects of our business practice.

Our sustainability will be an ongoing endeavour which will improve with time.

Our commitment:

  • To think before we use – efficient use of energy, water, fuels, office products and other resources we use to ensure we minimise and reduce our impact on the environment.
  • To minimise our footprint through building design, colour choices and tree plantings.
  • To think before we discard – recycling and composting all food scraps and other biodegradable matter can help reduce air, land and waterway pollution.
  • To only using biodegradable and eco friendly cleaning and bathroom products.
  • To protect native species and natural habitats – enhance/preserve with ongoing planting, pest and weed control programmes.
  • To take part in community initiatives working to protect the environment.
  • To educate our associates and guests. Tell them what we are doing and inform them how they can actively participate in helping our environmental sustainability.
  • To actively monitor our progress in reducing energy use, waste and water consumption.
  • To be committed to bringing constant environmental awareness into everything we do.
