EarthCheck and United Campervans
Our Environmental Performance - Working with EarthCheck towards sustainability in tourism
The environmental practices of United Campervans have been recognized by EarthCheck, http://www.earthcheck.org, widely regarded as the world’s most scientifically rigorous Environmental Management Programme and designed specifically for the travel and tourism industry. It looks at key environmental indicators such as energy and water consumption, total waste production, and community commitment to determine an operator’s standard of performance.
We have always recognised our responsibility to minimise the impact our fleet of over 400 vehicles has on the environment, and we encourage our clients to share in that responsibility. It's no surprise then that in 2004 United led the way to become the first rental operator in the world to achieve EarthCheck Benched Certification.
Since that world first we have successfully benchmarked and certified our operations annually, submitting each year’s operational data to EarthCheck for scrutiny, followed by an Offsite Certification Assessment conducted by an independent third party Auditor.
In 2011 we achieved the prestigious EarthCheck Gold level of certification, providing us with independent confirmation that we operate according to the highest of international standards, and helping to ensure our systems and the technologies we use are in keeping with the latest advances in climate change science and measurement greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).
The team at United Campervans invites you to choose an eco-friendly motorhome rental operator that genuinely believes in environmental responsibility. You'll soon discover that when you hire a United campervan you make a real difference to your New Zealand holiday.
