Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) is the region’s economic development agency and an Auckland Council-controlled organisation. Our programmes help make Auckland a desirable place to live, work, visit, invest and do business. Our purpose is to support the growth of quality jobs for all Aucklanders. ATEED is focused on economic growth that can be sustained in the long term, and benefits both current and future generations, as well as ensuring a sustainable approach is taken to managing the impacts of Auckland’s visitor economy. Having the Enviro-Mark certification helps to ensure that we’re walking the talk in terms of our internal sustainability practices, and that we’re approaching our activities in a way that leads to improved and beneficial environmental outcomes.
