The Kaikoura Community is Platinum Certified under the Earthcheck Sustainable Communities program. This means every person and business in the Community are helping to work toward sustainability and the Earthcheck program checks this work.
Earthcheck was developed from the United Nations Environment Program and is based on Agenda 21. From there, Earthcheck developed a plan for tourism and travel industry.
