We are super excited and proud to announce that Abel Tasman Eco Tours is certified a Climate Positive Business with Ekos.
We have measured and offset 134% of our carbon footprint for the 2021 financial year with certified carbon credits. These offsets grow and protect forests in New Zealand and help to deliver climate resilience, waterways protection, erosion control, biodiversity conservation and community economic development.
The certified carbon credits we are purchasing will be sourced from the Kānuka Hill, Uruwhenua Native Regeneration Project in Golden Bay. Registered under the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme in 2012, the forest sequesters 896 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually. The land is also home to the Kill Devil track, a historic and technical track used by mountain bikers and back country trampers on the edge of the Kahurangi National
Ekos is a social purpose business that develops and supports carbon projects that grow and protect forests in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Ekos connects carbon offset buyers with these projects by measuring business and individual carbon footprints, supplying certified forest carbon offsets, and providing carbon certifications (Zero Carbon, Climate Positive, Carbon Footprint and Carbon Friendly Certifications). Ekos forest carbon projects deliver climate resilience, waterways protection, erosion control, biodiversity protection and community economic development.
