Telling the carbon story of refurbishment
CEG have moved to a green energy supply to ensure we are minimising our carbon footprint and encouraging the renewable sector.
Waste management is an important aspect of our sustainability strategy. We are aiming to hit our target of 100% of our waste is diverted from landfill, and recycle as much of our waste as possible. 67% fully recyclable achieved at present.
Reducing our tenants’ daily travel footprint is an important part of our refurbishment strategy. Each cycle rack and shower facility has the ability to reduce hundreds of car miles per year.
