The awards celebrate outstanding performers within the international youth, student and educational travel industry and act as a benchmark for excellence within the sector.

YHA New Zealand’s Chief Executive, Mark Wells, is proud of this achievement.  Mr Wells says, “Once again, it is fantastic to get international recognition of YHA New Zealand’s longstanding commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible tourism. We are extremely proud of this award, which reflects this commitment through all our activity.” The Green Accommodation Initiative recognises accommodation providers with the most comprehensive environmentally sustainable programmes, caring for both customers and the environment.
