We are proud to take science based action to sustain the life of this place, our people and our future.
 
Toitū enviromark ® gold certified organisations have developed a comprehensive plan to help them achieve their goals outlined in their formal environmental policy. They are measuring their impacts so that they can better manage them. The organisation has the basis of a robust environmental management system in place.

Toitū Envirocare Limited believes that together we can build momentum, inspire change and take credible action toward a sustainable world. Based on science and backed by proof, our Toitū carbonreduce®, Toitū carbonzero CertTM and Toitū enviromark ® certifications give organisations the tools to reduce their carbon emissions and environmental impact. Initially developed for New Zealand business needs, our programmes now serve more than 400 clients worldwide. Wholly owned by Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research, a Crown Research Institute, our origins are in science, but our future is in the sustainability of our economy, our people, and our land.

The Toitū enviromark ® programme ensures organisations are meaningfully managing their environmental impacts through a mentoring approach. Through the programme, organisations develop, implement and maintain a robust Environmental Management System (EMS). The EMS is independently audited annually to ensure it meets stringent requirements of continual improvement, applicable regulations and international standards. Organisations identify the significant environmental impacts arising from their activities, and develop plans to prevent or reduce those impacts. An organisation can achieve one of three Toitū enviromark certification levels bronze, gold or diamond each of which builds on and extends the work of the previous level. Toitū enviromark diamond meets and exceeds the requirements for ISO 14001 (the international standard for environmental management).
