What is sustainability?

Sustainability is based on a simple principle: What we do in the present will affect the generations to come. Here at Pentagon Shopping Centre we see compliance as an opportunity to innovate and we work hard to implement solid procedures to help us manage our waste and to reduce our carbon footprint.

What changes have we made?

Since September 2016 we have introduced a zero to landfill policy. We have significantly reduced the volume of incinerated waste by implementing procedures to separate dry recyclable waste and general waste on site.  

How do our stores get involved?

Sustainability is a joint effort and we are supported by our retailers.
Retailers are encouraged to separate waste before placing into relevant bins.  All bins are checked before being emptied to identify any recycling materials
Retailers are encouraged to reuse cardboard boxes.
Light bulb recycling is also available.

We’re not done just yet!

Whilst we have implemented a robust system to manage our waste and carry out regular audits to ensure that we continue to achieve good results, we are always looking at ways to further improve our procedures. We are continuing our efforts to reduce energy consumption by upgrading our lighting to LED. With this programme we’re aiming to reduce our energy consumption significantly.

At Pentagon Shopping Centre we are committed to reducing the level of waste generated on site.  Working with the staff, our waste management company and retailers we have achieved fantastic results which are testament to the commitment, dedication and hard work of those involved.
