26th September 2018, 10:00 to 13:00 (lunch included) - FREE
Join us for a unique opportunity to learn how Paradise Wildlife Park manage energy and water consumption and waste generation on site, during a tour of the 30 acre site.
As part of this, we’ll look at heating and lighting installations, building and enclosure set-up and their rainwater harvesting system as well as learn about recent energy, water and waste initiatives such as the drive to eliminate single use plastics.
And of course we’ll get to see the animals; there’s over 800 on-site including tigers, monkeys and zebras!
The event is free to attend, as part of the Low Carbon Workspaces programme; a grant scheme that offers up to £5,000 to small and medium sized businesses to invest in measures that will reduce their fuel or utility costs and greenhouse gas emissions, such as LED lighting, electric vehicles or equipment upgrades.
A networking lunch will follow the tour.
