We are fully committed to sustainability. Our commitment is to live up to our responsibilities and continuously seek to improve our efforts in this area.

Our catering team has also introduced a number of initiatives which have a very positive environmental impact –
• all recyclable items are recycled e.g. all paper, glass and tin products
• eco friendly products are used e.g. wooden stirrers, napkins made from 100% recycled paper, biodegradable cups etc
• minimum usage is encouraged with the motto ‘why use two when one will do’
• 90% of Bankcentre’s food waste is recycled on site and turned in to compost which equates to 60 tonnes per year
Green awareness campaigns are regularly held for staff as part of the Add more green campaign to encourage all staff to continue to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
We are committed to continuous improvement in our environmental performance and we are continuously developing new strategies to bring about further improvements. We will continue to encourage and support our staff and our customers to consider changing behaviours that will collectively reduce our effects on the world around us.
