We're committed to both environmental sustainability and responsible tourism, which means operating in a sustainable way is pretty important to us. It's a way of thinking for all our staff, and we encourage our guests to think about it too.

YHA New Zealand was founded on a love and appreciation for the outdoors, so we'd like to protect those same outdoor spaces for years to come. We've got a few environmental initiatives on the go across our network; you can read more about them below.

YHA's triple bottom line approach: Supporting people, planet, and profit for sustainable growth

Our Policy

YHA is committed to sustainable development, which means meeting the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

We practice this through triple bottom line reporting, which considers our social, environmental and economic performance:

a) People


b) Planet

c) Profit
