Environmental Initiatives

Protecting Our Place

As part of a proudly New Zealand owned and operated hotel group, Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier is committed to protecting and contributing to the local environment in a positive way.  Being positioned in the heart of ‘Glacier Country’ means the responsibility to the local environment is even greater as this geologically significant and fragile eco system is one of the key reasons for visitors travelling to the region.

Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier has a number of initiatives across the hotel that work toward a sustainable future for this special environment. These include:

  • Plastic and aluminium reduction / elimination
  • Monitoring of energy usage and conservation
  • Comprehensive recycling and waste reduction programme such as conversion of cooking oils into bio diesel and composting.
  • Staff training in sustainable hospitality
  • Stringent ‘sustainable supplier’ evaluations and priority purchasing from the ‘Tranz Alpine’ area.
  • Supporting local producers and suppliers of this village community
  • Supporting local charities and community programmes including the West Coast Wildlife Centre “Operation Nest Egg” to benefit the Rowi kiwi conservation programme.

Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier supports sustainable living and actively encourages guests to participate in simple but highly effective hotel initiatives to uphold the hotel's Qualmark Enviro Silver award status, and to help keep New Zealand green and beautiful as well as supporting small regional communities.

As a guest of Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier you will not only enjoy genuine Kiwi hospitality in the heart of Glacier Country but also make a difference to local communities, not for profit charities and the wider environment by simply staying the night.
