We are committed to caring for our whenua and environment, which is why we are undertaking a conservation project to convert some of our land into wetland by planting with native trees. This will provide more oxygen-converters, increase biodiversity and reduce soil erosion in the flood-prone area.

We are working with Trees for Survival. In June 2022, we're having planting days where local school children will come and plant the native trees that they have grown! Kaipara College and Avondale College will be planting 1,238 native trees on our land. We'll ensure the trees are well looked after and the students are welcome to return to see their progress.

All our customers are invited to donate two native trees to help us restore nature and make the air cleaner and world greener. We will then purchase the trees, plant them and care for them as part of our conservation project.

Another option to reduce the impact that the skydive has on the environment is to purchase 'carbon credits' from environmentally beneficial projects. Permanent forests and sustainable, low-energy projects generate emission reductions that can be measured as carbon credits. You can contribute to the carbon credits that we purchase to help address the carbon emissions from your skydive.

Skydive Auckland is proud to maintains it's Gold Qualmark Award. This award recognises the best sustainable tourism businesses in New Zealand, with the delivery of exceptional customer experiences an integral part of everything they do.  A Gold Sustainable Tourism Award identifies those businesses leading the way in making the New Zealand tourism industry a world class sustainable visitor destination. Skydive Auckland was also a finalist for the Qualmark 100% Pure New Zealand Experience Award 2021. This award is an opportunity for operators to demonstrate commitment towards their people, community and place through their actions. The awards are not just about excellence in business leadership, they’re about recognising Qualmark members who are enriching their operating environment through initiatives that support the sustainability of the business and their communities.
