However, Park was able to demonstrate a number of improvements in its environmental performance over the past year, including a 12% reduction in energy consumption, a 21% reduction in water use and a 14% cut in the amount of waste it sent to landfill.

The east London company has embedded a 'cleaner, greener' message in its business processes, and has also encouraged employee involvement in its environmental management system through detailed staff inductions, quarterly briefing notes, feedback at management meetings, and staff participation on its environmental committee.
