STRONG COMMUNITIES MATTER
Fiordland is an incredibly special backyard. With untamed wilderness, remoteness and vistas to rival any destination on the world stage. And aside from the outstanding natural heritage, people are an integral part of the story; people and place.
Living on the flanks of Fiordland National Park requires a great deal of resilience, and with that comes a need to maintain a strong, resourceful, healthy and diverse community.
We are proud to have developed strong partnerships with local SME's, actively engage in the enhancement of our community, and donate to wrap around services and community assets which support the wellbeing of our people.
Where we can, we source local produce from like minded sustainable businesses, and purchase traceable NZ products, and services. Some of the cool local people we play with include, Roar Coffee, Fare Game, Catlins Coast Premium Meats, and Fiordland Helicopters.
Having a strong sense of community helps us "grow some good".
WE TREASURE OUR FOREST AND OUR OCEAN
The protection of the Fiordland environment and its inhabitants are fundamental to our business. We respect the ecological uniqueness and fragility of the area, contribute to conservation projects, operate under a no take-out policy with respect to fishing and ultimately practise the ethos of ‘protect and preserve’ to ensure the survival of our remaining wilderness areas.
AND IN TURN, WE ARE ENRICHED BY THEM
Every day, we imbibe the energy and excitement of the rugged landscape of Fiordland, and this just reinforces our passion for the area. We want to give others the opportunity to explore this magical place. A place where time stops; where the astonishing beauty can be marvelled at, and the connections it houses are only ever strengthened.
GROWING SOME GOOD
OUR JOURNEY TOWARDS "DOING MORE GOOD" RATHER THAN "DOING LESS BAD"
We are proud to call this unrivalled world class destination home and with that comes a responsibility to operate with environmental integrity. We are committed to the Tiaki Promise - to care for and protect New Zealand's toanga including the land, sea and cultural identity now and for future generations.
Beyond this, we have set a strategic goal of moving towards a regenerative business practice, i.e. "doing more good", rather than "doing less bad". Ultimately what this means is, rather than focusing on reducing our environmental impact we act in a way which enhances not only the natural world, but so too, our community, stakeholders and business success. We have made a start, and know we have a lot to learn.
