Qualmark Environmental Award – Waipoua Lodge receives Gold

 Qualmark Enviro Gold Award

We are delighted to have recently been awarded Qualmark’s Enviro Gold Award which is awarded to businesses that “exceed the highest levels of environmental and social responsibilities and represents strong leadership and advocacy”. 

The Award is in recognition of the environmental & sustainability philosophies and processes used by us plus the leadership and advocacy roles we undertake in regards to the economic development and promotion of the Kauri Coast and the environmental support provided to the local environment, in particular our ancient Waipoua Kauri Forest.

A new guest initiative which we have just launched is our Waipoua Lodge Recycled Bottle Garden Wall Project where we invite guests to put a garden stick into their empty wine bottle with a message for posterity of their name, country of origin and a brief message. The bottle then forms part of a feature wall in the lodge grounds.
