We have a clear obligation to protect the environment. Whilst our primary responsibility is to our customers and retailers, our influence on the environment is considerable. Our initiatives are guided by our environmental policy as outlined on the PDFs below.
Cwmbran Centre has been awarded the PAS99 accreditation standard, which includes BSI 14001 Environmental Management System (the internationally recognised standard for environmental management); ensuring that the environmental impacts are managed effectively, reducing carbon emissions, introducing renewable energy sources, increasing recycling and minimising water usage help to minimize our environmental footprint.
At Cwmbran Centre we see sustainable transport as an essential part of our ongoing commitment to becoming a more environmentally friendly shopping centre. As an integral part of the community we are working towards raising awareness of sustainable transport.
We believe that by working closely with the local authority and transport operators to increase the options for sustainable travel to and from our centre, we can provide more choice for employees and customers with the added benefit of reducing our carbon footprint. For those visitors that have mobility problems Torfaen Community Enterprises (located in Gwent Square) will be more than happy to help and can be contacted on 01633 874656.
