We have a clear obligation to protect the environment. As a shopping centre, our influence on the environment is considerable. Whilst our primary responsibility is to our customers and retailers, we also have an obligation to protect the environment.
This centre is currently working towards obtaining the BSI PAS99 standard. BSI 14001 Environmental Management System (the internationally recognised standard for environmental management) is now incorporated as part of PAS99; ensuring environmental impacts are managed effectively, reducing carbon emissions, introducing renewable energy sources, increasing recycling and minimising water usage help to minimize our environmental footprint.

Green Travel Plan
At Swan Shopping Centre we see sustainable transport as an essential part of our ongoing commitment to becoming a more environmentally friendly shopping centre.
As an integral part of the community we are working towards raising awareness of sustainable transport.
We believe that by working closely with the local authority and transport operators to increase the options for sustainable travel to and from our centre, we can provide more choice for employees and customers with the added benefit of reducing our carbon footprint.
