Our Commitments to the Environment
We play an important role in our city and it is part of our responsibility to ensure we protect the environment for future generations to come.
We take pride in protecting and maintaining our natural environment.
We work with the community to increase awareness to encourage responsible environmental behaviour. We are committed to managing our resource consumption, including water and energy, in order to reduce waste and greenhouse gas production and work with partners to improve air quality.
We work with the environment around three pillars:
Maintaining 100% zero waste to landfill and encouraging the reduction of waste generated by our tenants and visitors. We aim to continually increase recycling figures across Liverpool ONE.
Energy & Transport
Our aim is to reduce energy consumption year on year, continue to produce onsite renewable energy and facilitate green travel options into Liverpool ONE as we continue our journey to Net Zero.
Working to increase the biodiversity across Liverpool ONE year on year. We work with the community to increase access to nature and encourage responsible environmental behaviour.
We are on a journey working hard to have a positive impact on all our communities and the environment. Find out what else we do around our Commitments to Communities & People as part of our ESG Work – ONE Community ONE Future.
