Environmental Award Success for Birchwood Park
The facilities team for the award winning MEPC Birchwood Park, CB Richard Ellis, has won an environmental management accreditation, demonstrating the Park's dedication to environmental responsibility.
ISO 14001 certification confirms the team's achievement of a series of international requirements, providing a framework for the development of an environmental management system spanning a wide range of areas, including energy and water consumption and recycling.
Said MEPC Birchwood Park's managing director, Jonathan Walsh: "The certification sends out a powerful statement regarding our environmental credentials to all our stakeholders - whether they be our occupiers, potential occupiers or employees - that MEPC Birchwood Park is taking its environmental responsibility very seriously indeed."
The ISO accreditation for the Park's facilities management is the latest environmental achievement for MEPC Birchwood Park, which is also promoted by the Department of Transport as an example of best practise for its travel management plan.
MEPC Birchwood Park has an on-site travel coordinator, to provide commuter advice and help to occupiers. The Park has established a successful on-line car-share scheme, provides a free bus link to the town centre and local railway stations and is continually investing in improving facilities for cyclists.
