Peel is committed to sustainable development and sustainable economic growth. A committment to contribute to the Government's renewable energy targets, an emphasis on a low-carbon economy and the need to continually innovate shapes much of our work.

We were therefore delighted to achieve the coveted Carbon Trust Standard reflecting our efforts to reduce our environmental impact.

.....................................................................................................................................................

“Being certified with the Carbon Trust Standard is proof an organisation has taken genuine action to reduce their carbon footprint and remains committed to further reductions year-on-year. We congratulate Peel on this achievement.”

Harry Morrison - Managing Director

The Peel Group operating companies play a significant role in the vision for a low-carbon economy in the UK through their long-term vision and plans, including:

  • Peel Energy - continuing to look for renewable energy opportunities via wind farm development, biomass opportunities and projects of national significance in both tidal and hydro power technologies.

 

 

  • Peel Ports - playing a unique role in the future of a low-carbon UK economy  through the potential of the multi-modal transport hub provided by Liverpool2.

 

  • MediaCityUK - is a leading example of low-carbon growth and development, using a tri-generation power plant, a system that is 80% efficient compared to conventional power stations which are only 36% efficient and also by supporting the creation of a green travel infrastructure.

.....................................................................................................................................................

“MediaCityUK is the region's most exciting development for the digital and creative industries, it will be supported by an effective, reliable transport infrastructure that protects the environment and helps control carbon emissions.”

A change from 180w to 42w bulbs in over 400 light fittings and lower wattage bulbs being fitted into the 362 light fittings in the mall's ground floor car park,m have resulted in a huge electricity saving and a reduction of 356,957kgs of CO2 emissions per annum.
