Tourism Holdings Limited is a holiday vehicle rental company operating in New Zealand, Australia, the US and the UK.
This multinational tourism and recreational vehicle (RV) business is listed on the NZX with a global revenue of $426 million, but still manages to support both sustainability and profit. Tourism Holdings Limited’s (thl) sustainability programme includes climate change, responsible travel, crew well-being and community impact initiatives under three core pillars: Protect, Respect, Grow. Under the ‘Protect’ pillar, thl has set the specific target of a 20 per cent absolute reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 for both the organisation and its customers. In Australia and New Zealand, the organisational footprint has already been reduced by 3.4 per cent. Part of this process will be accelerating the use of electric vehicles; electric RV’s joined the New Zealand fleet in the summer of 2018/2019. As the largest RV operator in the world, this is a significant and commendable objective that will have a substantial impact on the environment.
