Park life...June 2013
?Holiday park company Center Parcs has been recertified to the Carbon Trust Standard for all UK operations, including its four villages - spanning 1,600 acres of forest - and says it 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 been placed amongst the top 10% on the Performance League Table of all organisations taking part in the UK Government’s CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.
The reduction in carbon emissions comes at a time when Center Parcs is undertaking a significant building programme for its new village in Bedfordshire. Due to open in 2014, Woburn Forest will set a new benchmark with carbon emissions 25% below the average of the four existing villages.
