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.

All eligible YHA managed hostels have achieved an Enviro Award. In Qualmark’s Backpacker category, throughout the whole of New Zealand, only 6 backpackers have been awarded an Enviro-Gold; and all of these hostels are all part of the YHA network.

In Qualmark’s Backpacker category, throughout the whole of New Zealand, only 7 backpackers have been awarded an Enviro-Gold; and all 7 of these hostels are all part of the YHA Network.
