Center Parcs awarded Carbon Trust Standard for reduction in emissions
Center Parcs’ reduction in carbon emissions since 2010 is the equivalent of driving around world over 600 times
Center Parcs has today announced it has been recertified to the Carbon Trust Standard for all all UK operations, including its four villages - spanning 1,600 acres of forest - and remains on track to reduce its emissions by 20 per cent by 2020.
The business has reduced its absolute carbon emissions by 5% over the certification period of the last two years. Center Parcs has also placed amongst the top ten per cent on the Performance League Table of all organisations taking part in the UK Government’s CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.
Center Parcs’ 1.6 million annual guests can not only enjoy the fact that they are reducing their carbon footprint by choosing a domestic short break over an international flight, but that the wider business has saved an additional 2,900 tonnes of carbon too: the equivalent of driving an average petrol car over 600 times around the equator.
