Here at NZWINEPRO we take the issues of sustainabilty and responsibility for our environment seriously. What we do now will impact not just on the kind of earth we live in, but also that of future generations to come. We believe it's really important to do the right thing. To that end we keep all our vehicles in peak performance and the team at John Andrew Ford take care of our fleet with regular maintenance and servicing.

We recycle all our waste where possible and use only environment friendly and compliant facilities to keep our fleet clean.

We are also a paid member of the Sustainable Business Organisation and a participant in their Greenfleet Programme.

  • In 2010 we offset 2.7 tonnes of CO2 by planting 18 native trees at Blockhouse Bay Intermediate School.  This is a voluntary way we can ensure we are not only carbon zero, but provide a framework whereby children can gain a better understanding and education of how to offset pollution caused by transport vehicles.
  • In 2011 we offset 3.5 tonnes of CO2 by planting 23 native trees at Kaipatiki Reserve in partnership with the Kapatiki Project. The Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre is about connecting people to the environment. They are passionate about protecting and enhancing native bush and educating the community to care for the environment. They do this through practical, hands-on courses and services and provide a wide array of volunteering opportunities.

NZWINEPRO - Auckland Wine Tours is also an approved Department of Conservation tour operator. This means we pay yearly membership and visitation fees for each person when taking clients to some of our most protected areas like the Muriwai Takapu colony and other protected forest reserves that might include endangered or rare flora and fauna.

We operate to a specific code of conduct to ensure that we not only minimise our impact on these special areas, but contribute to the cost of the care and upkeep with regard to the great work that New Zealand Department of Conservation rangers and field officers do on a daily basis.
