Commitment to Sustainability

Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters are dedicated to improving our sustainability practices and the environment in which we operate. Sustainability is ingrained in our operation, from small daily tasks to long term planning and is monitored in accordance with the 12 principles of the Tourism Sustainability Commitment.

Our modern fleet of helicopters have limited carbon and sound footprints. We also adhere to the Tiaki Promise, work with the Department of Conservation, Fire and Emergency NZ and support a multitude of different local community groups and events.


Our sustainability journey is in its infancy, but we are excited by the prospect of making a real difference and we invite you to join us by offsetting the emissions from your flight. Through our partnership with ToitÅ« we are committed to reducing our carbon emissions through the purchase of NZ native forest* carbon credits.

*When available, internationally sourced carbon credits may be purchased when there are supply constraints.
