Working Together for a Greener Shopping Experience
We work hard to minimise the impact of Shopping Centre to the environment by working together with our partners, tenants, and the local community for a more sustainable future.

Recycled waste is made up of cardboard, glass, plastics, metals, timber, and food. Our team also collects cardboard from other businesses in the town centre and we recycle this on their behalf.
Sustainability in Action: Paving the Way for a Greener Tomorrow
Electric Vehicle Charging
In 2022, we appointed Virtus Energy to install 8 Easee chargers on level 2 of the green car park. This type of electric vehicle charger is manufactured to contribute to a sustainable future by saving the environment for 4kg of copper and plastic produced per charger.
As part of our sustainable energy plan, we are working on ongoing projects to change all lighting to LEDs. The centre is naturally ventilated, and energy usage is monitored.
We have waterless urinals in place to reduce water consumption.
We operate a green travel plan for staff, and a company cycle to work scheme.
In our 2023 travel to work survey, we identified 50% of employees use a single occupancy car, 25% walk, 20% catch a bus, and 5% cycle. 80% of employees live within 5 miles of the centre.
Customer bicycle parking can be found outside the library and Patisserie Valerie.
Our Rooftop Beehives
Many people don’t realise that bees are a crucial part of our day-to-day life. Reductions in global bee populations pose a threat to the pollination benefits of both the planet and the people.
At Eden, we’re extremely conscious of the environment and building a sustainable future. This is why we introduced four beehives to our roof, giving our local bee populations a safe place to live and work.
