We have a clear obligation to protect the environment. Whilst our primary responsibility is to our customers and retailers, our influence on the environment is considerable. Our initiatives are guided by our environmental policy as outlined in our environmental_policy.
Brunswick Shopping Centre has been awarded the PAS99 accreditation standard, which includes BSI 14001 Environmental Management System (the internationally recognised standard for environmental management); ensuring that the environmental impacts are managed effectively, reducing carbon emissions, introducing renewable energy sources, increasing recycling and minimising water usage help to minimise our environmental footprint.
Green Travel Plan
At Brunswick we see sustainable transport as an essential part of our ongoing commitment to becoming a more environmentally friendly shopping centre. As an integral part of the community we are working towards raising awareness of sustainable transport. Communicating the methods of transport available to and from Brunswick is a key aim of the Green Travel Plan and supports our visitors by improving awareness of public transport, cycling, walking and car sharing opportunities.
This is a ‘starting point’ for new and better ways of travelling, which effectively manages our transport and travel impact, we aim to create a cleaner, healthier environment for the wider community. We believe that by working closely with the local authority and transport operators to increase the options for sustainable travel to and from our centre, we can provide more choice for employees and customers with the added benefit of reducing our carbon footprint.
