Nene Park Trust recognises its role in protecting the environment and is committed to reducing its carbon footprint. It will support its teams, partners and tenants to work in a sustainable way.

Nene Park is committed to

Becoming net zero by 2030 and develop a plan to achieve net positive by 2040.

Reducing our consumption of energy, water and raw materials and generate our own renewable energy where possible for the heating, lighting and running of our buildings.
Reducing, reusing and recycling waste.
Replacing purchases with environmentally friendly alternatives where possible.
Reducing the use of vehicles within the Park Team and encouraging visitors to access the Park sustainably via public transport, foot or by bike.
Managing the landscape to maximise biodiversity.
Choosing suppliers who have an environmental policy and accreditations.
Measuring and monitoring our carbon footprint through our Investors in the Environment membership, where the Trust has received silver accreditation and is working towards Green (the highest level).
Encouraging visitors, volunteers and staff to share their views and play a full part in developing new ideas and initiatives to support this work.

In 2022 we want to

Improve the energy efficiency of our buildings and install our first micro-generation on site.
Introduce a bus service from the city centre directly into the Park.
Provide information about routes and access into the park without the use of a motor vehicle and add more secure cycle parking in the Park, to encourage cycling as a viable form of transport to the Park.
Provide refill water points for visitors using refillable bottles.
Encourage the Park Team to use cycles to travel to and from different areas of the Park.
Switch to sustainable paper, PVC-free materials and environmentally-friendly inks for print marketing literature, posters and promotional banners.
