At Stakehill BID, we are committed to minimising our environmental impact and promoting sustainable practices. We recognise the importance of protecting the environment for future generations and strive to integrate environmental considerations into all aspects of our operations.
Our key environmental objectives are:
- Energy Efficiency: We will continuously work towards reducing our energy consumption and improving energy efficiency in our buildings and operations. This includes investing in energy-efficient technologies and promoting energy-saving practices among our stakeholders.
- Waste Management: We are dedicated to minimising waste generation and promoting recycling and reuse. We will implement waste management practices that prioritise reduction, segregation, and responsible disposal of waste materials.
- Sustainable Transportation: We will encourage sustainable transportation options for our employees, visitors, and stakeholders. This includes promoting public transportation, carpooling, cycling, and walking, as well as providing adequate infrastructure and facilities to support these alternatives.
- Biodiversity Preservation: We will strive to protect and enhance biodiversity within the BID area. This includes preserving natural habitats, planting native species, and promoting awareness about the importance of biodiversity conservation.
- Education: We will collaborate with local businesses, and community organisations to promote environmental awareness and education. We will organise workshops, events, and campaigns to engage stakeholders and foster a culture of environmental responsibility.
- Compliance and Continuous Improvement: We are committed to complying with all relevant environmental laws, regulations, and standards. We will regularly review and improve our environmental performance through setting targets, monitoring progress, and engaging in continuous improvement initiatives.
We recognise the importance of decarbonisation in achieving our environmental sustainability goals. As part of our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we actively seek opportunities to secure grants for decarbonization initiatives for Stakehill Industrial Estate. These grants will enable us to invest in renewable energy sources, energy-efficient technologies, and sustainable practices that will significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions on Stakehill. By bidding for grants, we aim to accelerate our transition to a low-carbon economy and contribute to global efforts in combating climate change. We will diligently research and apply for relevant grants, ensuring that the funds are utilised effectively to support our decarbonisation objectives and align with our overall environmental policy.
This Environmental Policy Statement will be communicated to all our Board members, stakeholders, and the public. We will ensure that it is readily available and regularly reviewed to ensure its ongoing relevance and effectiveness.
