The park’s ongoing management is conducted in a highly sustainable way, with natural landscaping waste extensively recycled and composted. Any ongoing refurbishment works including improvements to M&E systems are all designed to achieve a BREEAM rating of very good or better. At the time of writing an audit for ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Certification) was being undertaken.
Cambridge Research Park has a good relationship with Amey Waste Management Company with compost and pallets being donated free of charge.
These are a series of shared goody bowls left at strategic points throughout the park’s office buildings and café. Several have been themed to encourage our occupiers to think about sustainability, including growing sunflowers from shared seeds to working using a free recycled pencil we’ve provided.
Other fun and occasionally intriguing bowls have showcased everything from adult colouring books and eco-friendly toiletry samples to Jaffa cakes and Easter eggs.
