Here at Wyboston Lakes Resort sustainability gives us the opportunity to bring our diverse efforts under one umbrella and create a culture of conscience in what we do and how we do it. Our slogan is quite simply, 'More Sustainable, No Apology' meaning we're committed to making decisions which aren't the norm but will help us become more sustainable in everything we do. Wyboston Lakes Resort has aligned its own sustainability goals around the United Nations Good Life Goals and our own cultural aspirations for a hopeful future for all. #noapology
Waste management is a huge part of our sustainability policy. We're very aware that, as a Resort with so much on offer, what we waste has a massive impact on the environment. That is why we are proud to be 'Zero to Landfill' for the sixth consecutive year. Amongst other things we're committed to ensuring our waste is managed in the best possible way. As such we are now partnered with Ellgia waste management. All of the waste collected on the resort is managed so it doesn’t go to landfill.
As a large site, featuring more than 20 buildings with multiple uses, there are many factors to consider when looking at energy-saving opportunities. Negotiating better energy contracts and establishing kVA usage to amend the site’s agreed supply capacity was a priority for us.
Working with The Energy Check, our energy saving specialists, we undertook a number of energy efficiency improvement programmes, based on the completion of energy audits and feasibility studies.
We realise that sometimes making changes and doing the right thing isn't going to be popular. In 2020 we really made some big changes, from paper to plastics. We took a real hard look at the way we do things and asked ourselves if that was the best way for the environment. We believe we achieved some big changes, what do you think?
