As a Climate Positive business and the Kaitiaki Promise made by The Gentle Cycling Company, we are evolving and adapting as best we can to minimise the impacts of our tours. Choosing to offset 120% of the carbon emitted by our vehicles and electricity consumption, the wonderful people at Ekos are rewilding Mohua, an indigenous forest in Golden Bay. We’re proud to support this and many other great initiatives to improve the biodiversity and resilience of our natural habitats.
Sustainability means more to us than simply paying for trees to be planted. We are continually reviewing what, why and how we do things to reduce our use of the world’s precious resources and to reuse whatever we can in innovative ways day to day. Furthermore, we take part in community planting, weeding and pest eradication programs and regularly clear up plastic and glass waste around the Great Taste Trail, coast and bush, recycling / upcycling whatever we can.
Social sustainability is also of great importance to us. Read here to find out about some of the recent initiatives we have been involved in to get people cycling, gain independence and educated for safer roads.
