Qualmark Responsible Tourism Enviro Awards

It’s not just about fancy shampoos and a mint on your pillow – what’s really important is whether your accommodation provider is committed to the environment.

Qualmark operates responsible tourism standards as part of its assessment processes. High performers are eligible to apply for the use of a logo that represents three levels of environmental performance: Enviro-Gold, Enviro-Silver and Enviro-Bronze.

YHA New Zealand has committed to all YHA-managed hostels achieving a minimum of Enviro-Silver by 2014 and we are already well on our way to this target.

All eligible YHA managed hostels have achieved an Enviro Award. Click here for the current enviro ratings for our hostels.
