We have a clear obligation to protect the environment. Whilst our primary responsibility is to our customers and retailers, our influence on the environment is considerable. Our initiatives are guided by our environmental policy as outlined on the PDF below.
The Galleries has been awarded the PAS99 accreditation standard, which includes BSI 14001 Environmental Management System (the internationally recognised standard for environmental management); ensuring that the environmental impacts are managed effectively, reducing carbon emissions, introducing renewable energy sources, increasing recycling and minimising water usage help to minimize our environmental footprint.

Each day The Galleries welcomes thousands of customers through the doors, how our customers travel to The Galleries is important to us. We are working to ensure that the journey to The Galleries is one which has minimum impact upon the environment. At The Galleries 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. Read more here: Green Travel Plan
