As a responsible museum and tourism operation we ensure our activities have the least possible negative impact on the environment, now and in the future.

We are committed to working with others to raise awareness in the environment and to develop and demonstrate good practice by operating in a sensitive and considered manner.

Olveston Historic Home is proud to be certified Zero Carbon Business Operations with Ekos. We have measured and offset the carbon footprint of our Business Operations for the 2021 financial year with certified carbon credits from the Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project.

These offsets protect Māori owned indigenous rainforest, in western Southland, Aotearoa. This wet rainforest is adjacent to Fiordland National Park on the very southern coastline of the South Island, and located at the start of the Hump Ridge Track. The forest has a tawhai (silver beech) canopy, intermixed with miro and tōtara.
