We are really excited to reveal our 2021 Environmental objectives, working with our partners, clients and suppliers on making better choices to benefit our future generations and ultimately our planet.
In June 2020 we were awarded three gold awards from prestigious organisations for our efforts towards sustainability. Each organisation tested us on a variety of criteria, including waste management, energy, water efficiency, purchasing, and many more.
The Resort has installed ten more electric car supercharger points and two, dual 7kW electric vehicle chargers for guests to encourage electric car usage. There is now a total of 26 charger points on the site. As Wyboston Lakes has Green Electricity, all the charge in the cars is 100% green, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of cars charged at the Resort. An average car emits about 1 tonne of CO2e for every 5000 miles.
Gas and LPG are both fossil fuels that are more difficult to eliminate but we are focused on find ways to overcome this. We will progress the feasibility of the installation of both Wind Turbines and a Water Source Heat Pump to be submerged in the lakes that will be able to match our demand in utilities and so eliminate gas from the Resort.
We will pursue any government incentives to move forward with this project.
