Day Out’s Eco Promise
Day Out is passionate about the natural beauty of New Zealand’s environment. We are aware our activities could contribute towards a growing danger of environmental collapse, as we know it, and are determined to mitigate our emissions, from all our activities, in every way we can through eco management.
Day Out has engaged EKOS (https://ekos.org.nz/) to regularly audit and quantify all our business and domestic eco emissions, value them and purchase credits on our behalf that will allow us to operate a Carbon Zero business (see certificate below). This means our guests can relax and enjoy their eco tour experience with no worry about adding to the carbon burden. Good news for Day Out, and for our guests who book with us!
Additionally, we can provide guests with a card advising where they can make an eco donation for a native tree to be planted to offset other carbon emissions they may have accumulated while travelling to and around New Zealand.
Traditionally Day Out has given all guests a bottle of water when starting a tour. In line with our eco determination to cut down on plastics, we will no longer do that and urge guests to bring their own refillable water container. There will be a large water container in each vehicle and clean mugs to drink from should guests wish to use them.
