As people who live very close to the natural world we are genuinely proactive in minimising our impacts by educating our staff and guests in appropriate techniques to preserve the environment. With our roots in the New Zealand outdoors we have always been conscious of the need to ‘leave only footprints’ and we apply this philosophy to every venture we embark upon. Be it a weekend in the hills or a major expedition, we are particular about leaving the area cleaner than we found it. Adventure Consultants was the first expedition company to operate clean-up expeditions to Mt Everest and we were removing abandoned oxygen bottles from Mt Everest before well-funded ‘clean up’ expeditions became fashionable.
In addition to our existing high standards, we practice ‘Leave no Trace’™ principles to minimise our environmental footprint.
We print our catalogue once a year on Media stock paper from Spiciers Paper http://www.spicerspaper.co.nz Media is an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) www.fsc.org stock and our printer Spectrum is an FSC accredited printer. The pulp is harvested from a sustainable forest. Spectrum are part of the Bluestar Group and use vegetable based printing inks as opposed to mineral.
In our office we are working towards becoming paperless, with a custom made Client Relationship Management system in place of paper files.
