The Eglinton Country Park Eco Code demonstrates our commitment towards environmentally sound actions. These key areas are achievable and appropriate to our park, offices, visitor centre and cafe.
- reduce the amount of waste and increase the proportion reduced, re-used or recycled
- reduce the number of journeys made and use the most energy efficient vehicle where possible
- monitor energy use and reduce the amount of electricity used
- monitor water usage and reduce the amount used
- purchase, where possible, products that are environmentally and socially friendly
- seek, whenever possible, alternative means of working in a more environmentally sustainable manner
- actively encourage staff and visitors to follow the Eco Code and encourage schools to join the Eco Schools programme
- continue to manage the Country Park to minimise environmental impact, increase biodiversity and to demonstrate good practice.
