Last month, The Brunel Centre were awarded their Green Achiever Silver Accreditation, making them one of only a few shopping centres in the UK to make this level of environmental commitment. To achieve this standard, businesses must show signs of continuous improvements; be legally compliant and should have set actions to further reduce their environmental impact over the coming year.
The Brunel Centre has made fantastic progress in terms of reducing waste and energy use by carrying out activities such as waste segregation (to recycle more efficiently) and by installing low energy equipment such as timer switches on lighting in lit corridors.
With supporting knowledge and experience provided by consultants at E4environment, Green Achiever assists a wide range of companies in becoming greener. The scheme works on the belief that, if businesses are prepared to reduce their environmental impact, they should share these actions. The market for greener, more ethical products and services is growing and so the scheme is designed to help businesses market themselves to this audience whilst providing guidance and working together to set goals.
