2013 and 2014 – Silver Zero Waste Award In its continuing efforts to reduce the carbon footprint, White Lion Walk is delighted to have been awarded with a Silver Zero Waste Award. Being accredited with an Award gives us access to an exclusive and, I’m pleased to say, growing club. Achieving a Zero Waste Award is just the beginning; the aim of the scheme is to encourage the good work to continue. By becoming a member of Club Zero we will be able to communicate, inspire and share good practice with like-minded groups and individuals, who are either at the start of their journey or close to reaching their goal of zero waste to landfill.
2014 – 2 x Gold and 1 x Silver International CSR Award for Excellence White Lion Walk received a Gold International CSR Award for Excellence for keeping Bees.
The Centre first decided to keep bees to show that it is committed to helping the local community during a time when honeybees are in decline.
In the last four years, the Centre has strived to help and enhance the local ecology; this has been performed by starting Bee Awareness days, which show the plight of the honey bee.
These involve the setting up of stands and a stall in the shopping centre, with observation hives being placed so that the workings of the bees can be viewed in a safe environment.
Bees provide a third of the food we eat every day in the UK, without bees there would be a dramatic decrease in the amount of food available.
It was awarded a further Gold Award for its efforts in waste reduction by striving to reuse and recycle waste which used to go to landfill.
The Silver International CSR Award for Excellence was gained for the on-going efforts of White Lion Walk to reduce its carbon footprint by reducing the amount of gas and electricity consumed by the property. It has achieved these reductions by micro managing the set times for lighting and heating and by replacing high energy fittings with the more energy efficient LED fittings as and when the old fittings fail.
