Environmental Initiatives

Protecting Our Place

As part of a proudly New Zealand owned and operated hotel group, Heartland Hotel Haast is committed to protecting and contributing to the local environment in a positive way.

Situated at the base of mighty mountains and some of the region’s most dramatic landscapes that make up the South Westland World Heritage Area, Heartland Hotel Haast has a very special mandate to protecting its local environs and making a positive contribution to its small local community.

The west coast is one of the country’s most ecological and geolically diverse environments and is renowned the world over for its rugged splendor and nature based activities.

At the heart of this special place is a small community reliant on visitors and support of local businesses. Heartland Hotel Haast has a number of local community initiatives in place to help West Coasters in need as well as the local school and charities. Guests to the hotel can support this small community by donating or taking part in one of the many hotel initiatives to support local people and this special place. These include:

  • Plastic reduction / elimination
  • Monitoring of energy usage and conservation
  • Staff training in sustainable hospitality
  • Stringent ‘sustainable supplier’ evaluations
  • Supporting local producers and suppliers of this village community
  • Supporting local charities and community programmes.
  • Supporting Department of Conservation ‘Save the Rowi Kiwi Species’ by purchasing a toy kiwi.

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

As a guest of Heartland Hotel Haast, 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.
