Delivery of a fun, exhilarating and safe skydiving experience can have an environmental impact so we employ sustainable business practices minimizing the effect we have on our environment.

 

Energy Efficiency

  • Energy efficient lighting - we've moved to LEDs
  • Use of re-chargeable batteries for all our keyboards and radios.
  • Energy audits every 6 months
  • Switching off when not in use

 

Waste Management

  • Use of electronic and digital products, communications and marketing to reduce use of paper.
  • Recycling onsite.
  • Re-use of equipment and resources across all assets of the business.
  • Use of hand dryers to eliminate paper towels.
  • Reducing the waste of water.

 

Pollution

  • Minimizing fuel usage and offsetting our carbon footprint through conservation projects.
  • Providing a smoke free environment.
  • Reduction of noise pollution through planned scenic flight.

 

Conservation

  • Working with Department of Conservation (DoC) to improve the local wetlands reserve.  We're planting more native trees too!

 

Suppliers

  • Being an informed consumer, making purchase decisions based on supplier corporate responsibilities.  
  • Choosing local suppliers and NZ owned companies, such as NZ Aerosports and Seabreeze Apparel.

 

Community and Culture

  • Respecting Māori heritage in our corporate design, through newly designed merchandise and design of our reception area.
  • Education of our staff, through becoming Tamaki Makaurau Auckland Ambassadors.
  • Working with local groups to promote culture and history of the region.
  • Supporting local charities, schools and the general community through the organising of events, fundraising and donations.  Check out some of our most recent activities, including Keep New Zealand Beautiful Week & Skydiving Fairies, in our news and events
