Since 1990 we have pursued a sustainability strategy reusing redundant buildings to provide new uses with minimal car parking.

Our current strategy focuses on:

  • Reducing usage of water, gas and electric by investing in modern efficient systems.
  • Buying green electricity for all sites.
  • Planting trees to offset our carbon footprint (we planted a small wood in County Durham in 2000).
  • Developing cycle facilities at all of our sites.
  • Maximise use of public transport being located near to the Metro, Central Station and bus routes.
  • We have paper recycling facilities at all sites.
  • 85% of our waste is recycled by the supplier.

Our future development at Ouseburn, will feature air source heat pumps, sedum roofs and low usage electrical systems along with other green features.
